Cooking with Ginseng Roots and Powder

Preparation Tips:
Dehydrating the ginseng gives it a practically indefinite shelf life. To prepare, simply soak the dried roots in water for at least 24 hours to ensure total rehydration before cooking with them. Ginseng can also be eaten raw.

Harding's Wild Simulated Woods Grown Powdered Roots can be added to just about anything. The flavor is kind of bitter by itself but pretty mild when added to food. Sprinkle it lightly on just about any salad, or main dish. Heat does break down the valuable ginsenoside enzymes in the root. It's a natural food best if consumed uncooked (alive 'even if dried').

Our favorite way to take ginseng is in a power packed Ginseng Tonic.

Take 3-4 Fresh Wild Simulated Harding's Ginseng Roots or 1/2 ounce of Harding's Wild Simulated Ginseng Powder. Soak in a fifth of grain alcohol or vodka (750ml) for two weeks, flipping the bottle a couple times every day. A mason jar seems to work best. You can add some deer horn or cinnamon to strengthen taste and effects. After two weeks pour off some of the liqueur into a medicine dropper bottle. Every day or as needed give yourself a dropper full down the old hatch. Roots can be chopped in little pieces and chewed, or residual powder can be mixed in an energy shake with a kick.

Ginseng Tea

Take 4-5 dried roots and and simmer with water in a crock pot for 3-4 hours on a low setting.
This is awesome ginseng tea!
Powder can be steeped and settled in a tea pot.
