Goods to Know Storing Ginger

photo cred Cat

Honestly I could go on and on about the marvels of ginger.  It heals, it flavors, it does your body good.  If I could add ginger to everything, I would.  Problem is, I buy it for a recipe and then by the time I use it again, it has shriveled up.  Until now…

Upon commenting about said shriveled up ginger to my BF Michaela, she casually said “All you have to do is peel it and toss it in the freezer, and then when you need it, take it out and cut off what you need.” (I’m paraphrasing – she was probably more eloquent in its delivery).

Whaaaaat?  So easy, why didn’t I think of that?  Moral of the story, I’m never without ginger anymore.

p.s. Some people I know don’t even peel it prior to freezing – so it’s totally up to you.

I seem to remember you can also peel, slice and store in a glass jar filled with white wine…use the slices as needed and then also use the wine when you need a splash of gingery goodness in a salad dressing or other use. (not sure how whether that fits with being really “good”…but it tastes “good!” :-)

Loving this idea Cat! And it’s soooo much easier to grate frozen! Riight.
