Genius! Thank you so much for the tips!
Great info as I just found my cooking interests to the Mediterranean area. Had not tried ginger and no info at home
I have wondered how to prepare ginger for some time now. So glad I found your site.
Easy to follow, not unnecessary chattering! Loved it! Thank you
Great article, easy to understand and very helpful.Definitely I’m going to try to use a spoon next time to peel the ginger.
Elise, you told me exactly what I needed to know to correct my mistake. I was just peeling large pieces of ginger and throwing them in the Cuisinart. They were terribly fibrous and ruined the dish – Cold Sesame Noodles. Next time, I’ll cut them across the grain into coins, as you suggest. Thank you. Michael Curley
You’re welcome Michael! I’m so glad the tip was useful.
Much appreciated, wish my stores ginger was as magnificent as yours
Thank you for this useful info!
It’s comprehensive with many ways to prepare, store and use ginger. Thank you.
Beginner in the kitchen. If a recipe calls for minced ginger can I grate it? Will it work the same?
Hi Gretchen, sure! Grated ginger will work as a stand-in for minced ginger.
I think this is great information, thanks for sharing
Thanks for the tips! How long will whole ginger last in the freezer?
I couldn’t find a hard and fast answer, but let’s say it’ll last 6 months. After that, it’ll start losing flavor.
Great explanation on ginger root. I never ever bought the root.
I always bought ginger in the bottle, not the root.
Works in spite of negative remarks. Next for me is grating it. Personally it is taking it regularly and continuously.
Elise queen I’m yr Biggest fan these tips helped me through so much. Love you sis
Thank you Francesca, love you back!
I too landed here after googling whether you need to peel ginger. Thank for the answer and the idea to freeze the ginger. BUT, peeling with a spoon did not work for me at all. A regular (very good) peeler worked much better for me.
Thank you! I was googling whether or not I have to peel ginger at all because it is such a pain in the neck. Then your article came up and I am delighted to find out just how easy it is to peel ginger! Many many thanks for this wonderful tip!
Hi Liz, I’m so glad you found it helpful!
At my age it is hard to teach me something I don’t know. Thanks for the ginger article. I learned several new things.
This was soooo EASY! Wow…I could not believe how this worked! I will definitely eat more ginger now…THANK YOU!
Very clear. Very helpful! Thx
