Fresh Ginger Storage Tip
A long time ago I bought some fresh ginger at the store to make a ginger tea. Boiling water poured over a few small slices of fresh ginger, let steep, voila! Ginger Tea!
Then I had a knobby ginger root to store, so I put it in the fridge. Life has a way of moving along and then you forget about little things like the knobby ginger root that is waiting ever so patiently for you to use it again. As it turns out, the fridge and/or the counter are not great places to store fresh ginger unless you are going to be using it all up fairly quickly.
The best place, in my experience, to keep fresh ginger is in the freezer.
I place the ginger root in a plastic freezer bag and store it in the door of my freezer so I always have fresh ginger available for tea or for my Citrus Ginger Sauce!
Oh, I almost forgot…another tip (it’s a twofer!), when peeling the papery covering off of fresh ginger, use the back of a spoon and scrape.
