As we know, I'm not the most eager chef. I rarely used fresh ginger until I learned this tip because it was such a pain in the neck to peel it, and chop it up (I tried grating it once and that was a disaster), and we always had to buy a whole big ginger root which is way more than we needed for one recipe... Now I use fresh ginger all the time! (Don't I sound like an infomercial?)
The next time you buy fresh ginger from the store:
- Peel it
- Chop it into one-inch cubes
- Put the cubes into a plastic bag and store them in the freezer
Rachel Ray (or whichever staff member worked round-the-clock to come up with this little gem) is a genius.
