Sweet sticky ginger & honey ribs

Ginger! There are so many reasons why I adore ginger. Funny enough when I was younger I used to hate it, that burning sensation in your throat once you’ve munched a gingerbread man urgh ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. But now that I’m older and wiser, the benefits of ginger outway the taste, in fact, I now love the fiery sensation because it’s not ginger without it. Ginger is quite similar to turmeric because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It is particularly useful to ease pain in the joints that occurs with Osteoarthritis. It can also improve digestion, and it can lower cholesterol levels. Most importantly, paired with honey and a few spices, it makes a delicious glaze for these ribs!
