Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice.
Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste.
They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or cooked as an ingredient in many dishes.
They can be steeped in boiling water to make ginger herb tea, to which honey is often added; sliced orange or lemon fruit may be added.
Ginger can be made into candy, or ginger wine, which has been made commercially since 1740.
Can guinea pigs eat ginger
No, they can’t unfortunately. It is not a good food for them to eat at all as it is too strong for their stomach’s.
As a spice, either in powder or solid form ginger is a very strong food for them to eat and will probably make them sick if they eat it.
