Does it matter if you peel the ginger or not? Assuming no since the water gets strained, but wasn't sure if that makes a difference in the medicinal purpose of this drink. THANK YOU!

Same question about peeling the ginger... especially if it's not organic. I wonder what sort of soil ginger root is grown in? Metallic soil?

Nina - Yup it's pink. Nancy - see above comment. No need to peel the ginger. All soil has metals. If you're worried, pay the extra for organic ginger. But I am not sure what the concern is...

I like to add a couple drops of vanilla extract, too. Great for sore throats and stuffy noses.

This was great with a generous bit of honey. Can it be made ahead of time? If so, how long could it be refrigerated?

Wendy, Yes. Sometimes I make a whole pot and store it in a quart jar in the refrigerator. It will keep that way for at least a week. Probably more.
