One of the most refreshing and natural electrolyte drinks, the ginger switchel, is regaining popularity partly because of its health benefits, and partly just because it is delicious and perfectly hydrating.
If you don't already know - ginger is a winner! Throughout the world, this incredible root is enjoyed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Our gingernut biscuits with ground almonds, dried ginger and date syrup are deliciously chewy and crisp round the edges. Full of spice and just enough sweetness.
Ginger has been used for thousands of years to soothe tummy aches, nausea and indigestion. And according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, it has also history of use for "flu-like symptoms, headaches, and painful menstrual periods.” I like to keep this ginger syrup on hand during the cold winter months along with other syrups, tinctures and teas that support the immune system. Suggestions for delicious ways to use it are in the post!
