Ginger Carrots by Rikki Asher

As a child, my mother and grandmother gave me ginger ale for an upset stomach. Apparently, China has used the herb to treat nausea, upset stomach, digestion and many other cures for over 2,000 years! Recently, I had a tooth pulled and learned that ginger root tea helps soothe the pain. It worked almost as well as the prescribed pharmaceuticals. A ginger/carrot recipe may not help relieve your toothache, but I’m sure you will enjoy this side dish that tastes great and is good for you!
