The product I bought (thanks, Loretta for introducing this to me!) has ginger as well as Indian Gooseberries for a double punch of healthy foods and taste. There also is a bit of salt and sugar, but pretty negligible since I eat it by the tablespoon not the handfuls. It was on sale at JD Mills for $4.99 so I bought a couple 5 oz. containers which have lasted several months. I'm pretty sure you could find it locally at our Indian food stores or World Harvest. What does it taste like? Fruity ginger. Almost like an apple ginger chew, but a bit more tart than sweet and not chewy. It is dried and can be sprinkled on food or salads.
No tree and crazy kid"Butterfly". I promised her we would plant a lot of edible plants and a new tree (she requested a Mulberry since her beloved one was cut down by the power company soon after this post which caused two days of crying and mourning) farther from the house. She is still upset with us over the tree, but as we buy plants she'll feel better.
yellow leaves falling off
happy green leaves growing strongMany of you know I'm crazy about hibiscus tea. Our fabulous neighbor, Margie, bought me a tropical hibiscus plant for Mother's Day. I am notorious for killing the plants she buys for me ever year, but I was determined to keep this one alive. It wasn't looking good for a while, but the increase in sun and coffee grounds (thanks to our sweet other neighbor, Roger, for the suggestion) it is now thriving. I hope I can successful transition the plant inside for the winter.
