OOohhhh, ahhhhhhhh, if my partner could fling some candied ginger root my way, I'm be blissed!  Not only is it yummy, it is also great help with car sickness when traveling.

If anyone has a thrifty way of making candied ginger, please give!!! 

Personally I'd start by growing your own ginger Wink I have some in a pot outside my front door. I hope today isn't killing them  (current temperature 37.5C at 5pm. It's been getting warmer as the afternoon goes on)

OK, you hereby officially ROCK!!!

It's surprisingly easy to kickstart some ginger. I bought some organic ginger from the supermarket, cut it into 4 pieces, and stuck them into water for a few weeks.



Now they're out coping in the real world. I hope it grows well and hardy. I make a lot of spice pastes, and I prefer to grind fresh ginger rather than use ground.

And KittenWrangler - that is so cool.  I'm going to have to try that!  I still need to plant my garlic ... I keep forgetting (luckily it's supposed to just sit there all winter in the cold soil!)

Oh, people from all over. It's going to be another one of those swap packages that the post office lady yells at me for because she doesn't understand what I've written on the package.

The last one I wrote B.C. and forgot to put Canada after. The one before that I wrote "Cardiff, Wales" and she griped... Where IS that?!

I think US postal service employees should be required to take a lot of geography classes.

dude, that totally happens to me.  i'm right there with ya on the mandatory geography lessons!

I'm really really excited for this swap. I told my husband about it as we were paying $40 bucks to ship a swap package to New Zealand yesterday, and he says "I think you should definitely do that one". Hopefully the package will arrive soon and I'll get some feedback so I can join in before the 8th!

I hope so, too!  Though chances are if you can't get in on this round, with almost 50 participants, I'll organize it again in a couple months. Cheesy
