This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, our featured post will teach you how to make your own ginger ale!

Health Benefits of Ginger

Ginger is an amazing herb that offers lots of health benefits, so why not learn how to make your own ginger ale with it?

It is probably best known for helping with stomach problems such as nausea, stomach upset and indigestion. Over the years, it has helped calm the stomach of many pregnant women dealing with morning sickness or those who suffer from motion sickness.

It has also been used to calm muscle pain, menstrual pain and help with inflammation, such as one experiences with osteoarthritis. The active ingredient in ginger, gingerol, also helps fight bacteria, which aids in helping to heal infections.

Ginger may also lower blood sugars, help to lower cholesterol and help improve heart disease risk factors. It can also help prevent cancer as well as improve brain health, thereby helping prevent Alzheimers.

With all of these health benefits, I think it is important to get more ginger into your diet! Why not replace that store bought soda which has absolutely NO health benefits, with a healthy home made soda such as Ginger Ale!

Is your garden harvest getting out of control? Are your freezers full and you have canned as much jam, jelly and pickled items as you can stand in your water bath canner? Maybe it is time to invest in a pressure canner, so that you can can all of your veggies without pickling them, and can meat too!

Having a pressure canner on hand, allows me to make quick convenience meals that are shelf stable. See my article 15 Reasons Why You Should be Pressure Canning, and then read my review so that you will know which pressure canner to buy!
