Ginger is a rhizome that can be consumed raw, cooked into stir-fries, soups and stews, boiled into tea, or dried and powdered for use as a seasoning or spice. Ginger has a spicy zing and is often combined with garlic in savory dishes, or cinnamon and nutmeg in sweet preparations. Ginger, according to Drugs.com, has been used to boost appetite, reduce acid in the stomach, forestall motion sickness and cut down on nausea. Adding it to other ingredients while juicing is not complicated.
Things You'll Need
Choose the freshest ginger available for the sake of flavor and nutrient availability.
Wash the ginger, using a vegetable brush if needed to get into crevices. You want to be sure the root is free of dirt or debris before adding it to your juicer.
Peel the ginger, using a peeler or paring knife.
Cut the ginger into pieces 2 to 3 inches in length and of a width small enough to fit the mouth, or insertion cavity, of your juicer.
Place a ginger piece into the juicer’s insertion cavity.
Press down on the ginger with the tamper until it has been pushed through to the juicer’s cutter.
You can add the ginger at any time during the juicing process — at the beginning, end or in the midst of juicing the larger vegetables or fruits.
