There are few and far between good Asian restaurants in our area,
so I like to make ours.
It seems like the ginger at the grocery store is sold in large pieces.
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 this would go back in to my fridge, dry out and turn moldy.
I don't know about you, but I don't use this much ginger in 1 meal!
So what to do with all this ginger? I cut the ginger in to 1" pieces.
Tossed it in to a freezer safe container, and left it there till the next time I needed ginger!
What I found out is that...
It freezes well!
The next time I need ginger I just take out a piece,
No need to peel,
Don't thaw, grate frozen (actually grates easier),
and use in your recipe.
So easy, frugal and time saving!
