The plant goes well with vegetables, meat and especially fish.

But if someone is about to die, powder ginger and use the powder moderately in soups and eat it moderately with bread and he will feel better. And if anyone has a lichen rash, put the powder in a cloth and this in vinegar and add a little wine and rub it on the skin and he will be cured.
