Ginger: cooking tip

Don't let the big hands (what pieces of ginger are called) of ginger overwhelm you. Fresh ginger is easy to use and can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Using ginger is easy. For every one part of dry ginger called for in a recipe, add 6 parts of fresh ginger.

Taking the dry skin off of ginger is easy; use a spoon and rub it off. Grate the moist beige insides for your recipe.

To store, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze up to 3 months. Don't worry about thawing for a recipe.
