I finally worked up the nerve to try fresh ginger to make tea for an upset tummy. I was intimidated by the appearance of the root but it was easy to slice and peel. Not only did it help me feel better but it is delicious and after some research I found it has many health benefits. This will be a drink I will make on a daily basis as an alternative to plain water or coffee.

I peel the fresh ginger, wrap it up in cellophane in big pieces, and then when I need it, I just GRATE some of the fresh stalk into the pan. This works very well. I always used to let the fresh ginger ROT by mistake. I heard this from Doctor Zorba Pastor on Your Health (Radio Show)
Fresh Ginger is wonderful in asian dishes and stir fry, and it packs a delicious taste which I love especially in peanut sesame noodles.
I have an iced tea maker...you don't necessarily have to make tea in it...sometimes i put slices of ginger in the filter or mint leaves and then you can add a little lemon or lime juice after it brews for flavor and a sweetener like stevia, agave or Splenda. Fresh and yummy!
Of course, you can always make various teas also-green, black, white, and red. Go crazy! One of my favorites is Good Earth sweet n spicy tea because you do not have to sweeten it at all and it's still delicious.
