Home Made Ginger Tea - WHB #267By Brii
beautiful morning, and also the rest of the day was very niceicy cold but in the sun it was rather warm.
I've done absolutely nothing all day, just relaxing working a little in the garden.I'm waiting for the next full moon to some pruning, it is to dangerous nowit is still under zero at night, and that can damage the plants.
this afternoon I tried the new tisane I have made.it was good! not like the one Anna from the Mill Bertolini gave me as Christmas giftbut nevertheless using simply ingredients I'm satisfied.

it is rather long to make candied ginger, but I have tried also just dry the ginger in oven like the orange peel.it is nice, put lose it's strong perfume. if you prefer a lighter taste, you can use driedginger.peel and slice the fresh ginger. then put on a baking tray covered with baking paperand let dry in oven at 50°-75°C for 6-8 hours.
you can add green tea leaves if you like.
