Junior Editors Qui* on SPICES QUESTION: Where was ginger first used? ANSWER- Ginger was first used hundreds of years ago by natives in the East Indies who discovered that the roots of the qfnqVr plant had a warm, spicy taste. East Indian natives, lust like the Indians who inhabited this country before the arr.val of Ihe white msn, were very familiar with the many ways they could use the plants growing wild around them. Later the ginger plant was introduced into Japan, the West Indies, South America and West Africa, and today the finest ginger comes from Puerto Rico and Jamaica. Ginger as a spice is familiar to all of us, but there are other ways in which ginger is used. Oil of ginger is used as a medicine internally for the stomach, and externally for pains, like a toothache. Ginger tea is a home remedy too for stomach ache. Candied ginger is a delicacy, and gingerale is a most popular soft drink. To make black ginger, the roots of the plant are dug up and dried whole after the leaves wither, and then ground into powder. Scraping and washing the roots before they are dried will give white ginger. FOR YOU TO DO: Like this little girl in our pic'rure, you can make gingerbread cookies and a gingerbread man. When you roll out the dough, take a knife and cut out the man, put raisms in his face for eyes and nose, and design a smiling mouth with the tip of your knife.
