of an edible nature:
See, I was thinking: we Gingers are also ginger nuts; often spend portions of our teenage years as gooseberries; and may, like anyone one else, be fools. Well, I’d hope so–it’s a sign of sanity and the first step towards wisdom.
But I was also thinking, along the way: but hang on: Ginger is great and good. By that I mean the food, of course. Here are some marvels of gingerliciousness, suitable for summer or, what the heck, whenever you need reminding that summer does actually exist and isn’t a myth. For the Dark Days will soon be upon us.
Winter / out of season adaptations:
1. Gather ye gooseberries while ye may, in summer; either cook then store (preserve, bottle, freeze) or just freeze from fresh.
2. Fools are BRILLIANT and can be made with pretty much any fruit; many vegetables too. Play around. Have fun.
3. If in doubt: there is always jam.
4. And the option of eating ginger nuts with a nice cup of tea.
