Ginger and a recipe for Gingered Sweet Potatoes

source
Ginger root is a powerful anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.
Add grated ginger to a vegetable mix while stir frying it, or make an infusion by steeping ginger root for 10-15 minutes and drink hot or cold.

Gingered Sweet Potatoes


8 cups peeled and cubed sweet potatoes (about 8)
4 tea. salt
4 Tab. butter or margarine
1 tea. grated ginger
1/2 tea. maple syrup
nutmeg

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add sweet potatoes and salt and cook 25 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid and return potatoes to pot with the liquid. Add butter, ginger, maple syrup and nutmeg to taste. Use a potato masher or electric hand mixer to mash potatoes. You may want to add salt, lemon juice or more syrup to taste.

  1. Oh wow! Those sound yummy! Okay. At the risk of sounding like too much info from me...I'm wondering if the sweet potatoes (that I LOVE to eat, but don't eat too often) give me gas?? I need to look it up and see if they are a cause of gas or if it is something else I ate.
