Ginger Mead   የዝንጅብል ጠጅ

I love the fresh ginger - lemony pungent aroma that wafted in my nostril when grated.

For years, fresh ginger was something I used in my cooking, which beautifully complements a range of dishes from sweet to snnavory. It can be a dominant flavoring, or it can work in conjunction with other flavors.


Ginger can also be infused into milk and cream to make a mild to tangy custard or ice cream.  

Ginger's tea rejuvenating, soothing and invigorating qualities are naturally warming. It also supports healthy digestion.

My home-brewing adventure inspired me to think outside the proverbial box of my standards cooking and discover new ways of using ginger as tej flavoring and I was pleased to learn that ginger has few limitations. 


During the the tej tasting sessions the coffee and the ginger flavored tej - ጠጅ were a tie among men in general and a few ladies.


Ginger flavored tej offers an exciting blend of sweet and spicy flavors. It turns a simple tej into an intricately layered cocktail experience. Married well with the sweetness of the honey, the ginger spice appeal is big.


Its tangy freshness, light spiciness, warmth, and mellow sweetness allures the palate into delightful and mouth-bathing gingery delight experience without being overpowering.




PS: We ain't talking about getting too happy here. "Moderate drinking," as defined by the U.S. Department of agriculture is no more than one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for men.
