For this BB, you will create an infusion of ginger root (technically, ginger rhizome). Infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in hot or cold water, depending on the plant and its attributes.
To show you’ve completed this Badge Bit, you must post a picture or video of:
- the rhizome you started with
- you making the infusion
- the finished infusion
We often make this for upset tummies in our house. Sometimes we even inoculate with probiotic and bottle it for a fizz. Does it have to come from ginger I harvested? I don't think it grows in Idaho. But we purchase it fresh. If the counts for a BB, then here are my pics.
