How to?

There are several ways you can prepare or consume black ginger. These are three of the most popular ways the Thais use black ginger:

  1. Boiled with water

This can be prepared with either fresh or dried Thai black ginger. Cut the ginger in slices and boil it in water. The black ginger drink is ready for consumption once the water is boiled. Some may prefer to add honey into the drink for taste.

  • Powdered and mixed with honey

Black ginger can also be consumed as a bread spread together with honey. To prepare this, either grind dried black ginger into powder or pound it with a mortar and pestle before mixing it in with honey and spreading it on bread. 

  • Soaked in alcohol

The Thais also like to drink black ginger with alcohol. One of the more popular ways of doing this is soaking slices of the ginger in a bottle of alcohol (Such as 40 degrees in Thailand) for one to two weeks before consumption.
