Recipe for today: Hot Ginger Coffee Recipe

I like to sit by the fire and sip this coffee on a cold winter day. It's a great warm-up after shoveling snow, XC-skiing, skating or snowshoeing.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons ground coffee (not instant)
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups cold water
  • Whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and/or additional orange peel, optional

Directions

  • Combine the coffee, orange peel, ginger and cinnamon; pour into a coffee filter. Brew according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Pour into mugs; garnish with whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and orange peel if desired. Yield: 6 servings. 

    Editor's Note: Look for crystallized or candied ginger in the spice or baking section of your grocery store.
