   Based on the recipe for, Healthful, Home Made, Orange-Ginger Tea, this tea was concocted as another tasty way to get some Ginger into your diet. The spicy-sweet root is known for it's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The fact that it tastes like autumn in a cup is just a perk.

You will need:

  • 2 apples
  • Fresh ginger root (About two thumb-sized chunks)
  • 2 teaspoon dried cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tablespoons brown sugar
  • About a gallon of water
  • Large soup pot
  • Blender or food processor
  • Sharp knife
  • Coffee Filters
  • Small pot or microwavable cup
  1. Peel the apple, remove the core. Peel the ginger. Cut apple and ginger into chunks, put it in the pot, and add just enough water to cover them. Add cinnamonBoil until soft.
  2. While the pot is boiling, warm about a cup of water in the microwave, or in a small pot on the stove. Let the cloves steep in the water.
  3. Puree softened apples and ginger in a blender or food processor with a little cool water. Return the pureed apple to the pot, and add enough water to make it liquid. Bring up to a boil.
  4. Puree the cloves and water in the blender or food processor, and strain the mixture through a coffee filter. Add the filtered liquid to the pot, and add the rest of the water.
  5. Add brown sugar, and warm over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. You may also add extra brown or white sugar, to taste, if you like it sweeter.
  6. This tea is best served cool. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed pitcher, or clean milk jug. Shake well before serving.
