Dehydrating Ginger


    I love ginger.  It is so good for so many things from recipes to ailments. Ginger is great in tea (hot or cold), great in recipes (think Chinese dishes or gingerbread cookies) and can help with nausea and other ailments.   It is good to have some on hand always so one way that I do so in our household is to dry the ginger in my dehydrator.  It is super easy to do and makes it where you can have ginger on hand all year long.

Fresh ginger.

      To dehydrate ginger, take fresh ginger and using a vegetable peeler, peel the ginger, then slice into thin slices.  Lay the slices on your dehydrator trays.

     Turn on your dehydrator to 135 degrees and dehydrate for 4-6 hours.  You can store the dried ginger in a canning jar or you can turn it into ginger powder and store in a baggie.
