TOPIC: How to prepare ginseng for use?

How to prepare ginseng for use? 3 years 9 months ago #32871

I'm going to keep some of my harvest this year for personal use. I was needing to know how to prepare it as a tea, and any other way. I know nothing about it so please any and all info is greatly appreciated. Thanks and God Bless

I normally just cut the roots I plan to use up into small pieces (about the size of a pencil eraser) then let them dry, and put them into an air-tight plastic container. They do go stale though after a while (a couple years and I can't stand the taste and throw them out).

I always save the tops and hang them to dry... then store them in ziplock bags in the fridge to make tea from over the winter. Adding some mountain tea leaves (wintergreen) gives it a bit more flavor. Its hard to keep it on hand at work , seems like everyone likes it.

I often add a teaspoon of ground ginseng to my coffee in the morning. When digging I or while fresh I also enjoy chewing on a good root and have been known to chew the stem from top to bottom even chewing up the leaves.
