Obscene Ginger


I'm a fan of ginger root. Love it in a spicy sautee, diced into asian soups, (email me for the recipe)
or sliced thin between bites of sushi... 


even boiled in a pot as ginger tea. But having been ignored lately, my ginger started to scream for attention. By growing in an obscene fashion.

Does anyone know how to care for growing ginger? Can ginger survive, here in a climate of such bizarre extremes? Should I let it stay in, or bring it out? Plant it, or leave it?

I've never heard of anyone growing it here, but I don't know that many people with green thumbs. Hope yours survives!!

PS- do you remember the tori amos album cover with the ginger on it?

Mmmmmmm....ginger.

I do heart Tori, too, and I think the cover of Crucify was her with a necklace of some sort of root...spring onions? mini potatoes? ginger? Not sure. And I'm also not sure how to grow ginger but I think you have to plant that to see what happens!

It was the back of the "little earthquakes" cd. Man I'm a nerd for remembering that!!

Ginger was always my favorite on Gilligan's Island. What a great name for a gal! Also a lover of tasty ginger and a compress of ginger for a cold is a wonderful remedy which I found on line at
nonchalantmom.com
Try to grow it!
Wow, did you make that sushi too, please the recipe for that dish, love it! My twins will eat it up!

I love ginger too. Not sure if you can grow it in the Northeast but you can always buy it and put it in the freezer - taking it out and cutting a piece off when you use it. Been doing that for years. Would love your recipe if you have the time!
