Smiles and thanks for visiting!
There are few and far between good Asian restaurants in our area, so I like to make ours. Fresh ginger is typically sold in “knobs” and can be in larger pieces then you’ll need for one or more recipes!
This is a typical size of ginger (sorry I was prepping food for our Asian meal) found in the store.
After breaking off a piece it heads back into the fridge where it will dry out and turn moldy.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t use this much ginger in one meal, unless I’m cooking for a crowd!
So what to do with all this ginger? The answer is to freeze fresh ginger by cutting the ginger in to 1″ pieces.
Tossed it in to a freezer safe container, and leave it there untill the next time I needed ginger!
It freezes very well and you don’t need to peel it before grating…
The next time I need ginger I just take out a piece, don’t peel it, don’t let it thaw because it grates so easily frozen and use it right in your recipe for a fresh ginger taste.
No need to peel,
So easy, frugal and time saving!
