We had a craving for sushi recently. The idea was ofc to home-make everything. Except of soya sause, which I have from dear Japanese friend and which is a fermented, organic one. And rice vinegar. We even tried to make wasabi from horseradish – that didn’t turn out so kicky as it should, maybe next time 🙂

Anyhow in the shop our gaze stopped on marinated ginger for sushi – the amount of chemistry in it is overwhelming. But making it was a piece of cake!

What came out of this experiment was a spicy flavorful ginger. Did you know that ginger has anti-inflammatory properties? When you eat this ginger you can definitely feel it in your throat. Ginger also heals migraines, helps with vomiting reflexes and improves concentration.

Did you know ginger helps in sea sickness?

Just take a stripe and suck it while you feel sick. You can cut fresh ginger, take a marinated one or even make a ginger tea for a child.streaming Beauty and the Beast movie
