I’ve heard lots of different ways to peel fresh ginger, from sharp knives to veggie peelers to spoons. The latter are my favorite – especially when cooking with kids (which happens a LOT around here!) Spoons scrape the skin off easily enough & leave most of the ginger behind (although I have to admit to being lazy enough to just grate it with the skin on from time to time – particularly when making soda culture for home made fermented berry soda like this delicious one).
When you get your fresh Ginger home from the store or market, go ahead & peel it. Use what you need immediately, and then freeze the rest. It’ll actually be easier to grate once it’s frozen & it won’t shrivel up into oblivion like it does in the fridge!
Some health benefits of ginger – there are many!
Any tips you’d like to share?
