Ginger Infused Honey from Verdant Kitchen
Wildflower Honey Flavored with Organic Ginger
Ginger—one of the original super foods—is known for its many health benefits from aiding digestion and relieving muscle pain and soreness to fighting infections. Did we mention it tastes delicious too? The folks at Verdant Kitchen are growing and are harnessing the power of this righteous rhizome in Savannah, Georgia. They use a slow raw food dehydration process to preserve the ginger’s natural integrity, health benefits and flavor.
To make their Ginger Infused Honey, the dehydrated ginger—which is also USDA-Certified Organic—is ground and blended with local Georgia wildflower honey. The warm, spicy notes of ginger marry perfectly with the lightly floral, citrusy notes of the honey. This infused honey works wonderfully in sweet preparations and pairs especially well with apples—drizzle the honey over baked apples, use to sweeten homemade applesauce or bake up a honey apple upside down cake. Or make sweet ginger honey butter—mix a couple spoonfuls into softened butter and slather over warm biscuits or scones.
Verdant Kitchen’s Ginger Infused Honey also makes a great addition to savory recipes—try it in marinades, vinaigrettes and dressings. Make a simple dressing—combine a spoonful honey with lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of salt—and spoon over a simple salad of citrus segments and slices of avocado.
