Get to know Cathy’s Ginger Spices

cathysginger logo

In a world where people are trying to get healthy, Cathy’s Ginger Spices are a delicious way to enrich healthy foods, making them even more beneficial and tastier. The mouth-watering flavors and amazing smells will get you salivating at the mere thought of Cathy’s Ginger Spices. We start by drying and grinding most of our own, high quality herbs and spices. Then, we hand mix just the right amounts to come up with the best new spice mixes in years – all based on ginger.

Our delicious and aromatic products are used by individuals, restaurants and sold in stores. For your convenience, we also have them available here.

Ginger is an antioxidant and has a long tradition of alleviating stomach conditions. It can calm the effects of morning sickness and is completely safe for expectant mothers. Ginger is also an anti-inflammatory and can help reduce pain and increase mobility. According to a recent study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, this was true in 75% of arthritis patients and 100% of those with muscular discomfort.

Get rid of those dusty old jars in your spice rack. Remove the bland seasonings from the last century and enhance your kitchen with these great new flavors! We are constantly experimenting with flavor combinations that have not been created in the past. As we grow and expand our spice selections, we will update our website and offer suggested uses and recipes for our products.

Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is easy to make. Measure 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger into a heat proof mug or glass and pour 1 cup of boiling water over it. Cover with a saucer and let sit until cool enough to drink before straining. (I like a fine mesh strainer with a coffee filter to do so.) Sweeten with honey or sugar as desired. The dose for children: 1/4 cup every two to three hours and aim for no more than 1 to 2 cups total per day.
