Grating Ginger For Stir Fries.


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I prefer Ginger root for stir fries. I store my ginger root in a zipper bag in my freezer. When I want the ginger I just remove the end skin and grate the frozen root over the pot.
It goes through the fine grater and sprinkles over the surface. No clumping. I return ginger in bag to the freezer.

This keeps well. I use it in Ginger tea and ginger cookies. I use it often and there is much less waste. I like big round roots . Easier to handle.

    Thanks, Pat. I too am always having to throw away ginger, and knowing I can freeze it will help. Ginger is essential in my favorite Indian dishes!

    This is a great idea, Pat. Thanks. I am always having to throw away ginger. I also find it difficult to grate. Freezing should help.
