Ginger can be used for both sweet and savoury dishes and preparations. Hot ginger tea with lemon and honey is a popular winter drink which can be served as a lemonade in summertime. Ginger constitutes a basic ingredient in Asian cuisine, it adds a spicy flavour to stir-fries, soups and curries. Ginger combines well with meat, chicken, fish and poultry.
