‘Tis the season for all things spiced, cozy, and fashionably fabulous. The holiday season is a time when it’s perfectly acceptable (and maybe even expected) to go the extra mile to make everything just a bit more extravagant. Level up your baking skills by making your own gingerbread man cookies and transform your average milk into golden goodness by infusing local turmeric paste and fresh ginger. Don't wait for the new year to start on those resolutions — prioritize your health with a cup of kombucha, and while you're at it, why not upgrade your look with a new luxury leather handbag! This is the time of the year to add a little more merry-making and joy to everything in your life.
Ginger is one of our favorite flavors for the holiday season, as it perfectly complements other spices and adds that warm, Christmassy feeling on gloomy, rainy season days. If your Christmas decor is already out (like ours is), turn on those twinkling lights and cozy up next to the tree while you find out our favorite ways to enjoy this seasonal flavor and shade: Ginger.
