T&T: Freeze the ginger to keep it longer.
There are a few things you need to do to the ginger before you freeze it.
- Cut off any of the "nubs" on the sides.
- Peel the entire root.
- Place into a freezer bag
- So when you go to use it, don't thaw it out. Take it out, cut off a chunk and put the unused piece back in the bag and into the freezer. My favorite way to use it is using a shredder. Ginger is extremely easy to shred while frozen.
- Ginger is also really good for your health. So shred a little into you tea, or any food dish. Its a wonderful flavor to use on practically anything!
