[Update: AND, in case you are wondering how to store your ginger…I’ve got you covered there, too.]
It’s my first “figure out what I’ve been doing wrong” post of the year, and I’m really excited for this one. I love using fresh ginger in my cooking. Not only does it have a multitude of health benefits, but the warmth of the flavor adds a lovely layer of complexity. It’s also relatively inexpensive and stores well in the fridge. My one gripe about ginger is that it’s so difficult to peel and I end up wasting much of the root in the process.
