I peel the fresh ginger, wrap it up in cellophane in big pieces, and then when I need it, I just GRATE some of the fresh stalk into the pan. This works very well. I always used to let the fresh ginger ROT by mistake. I heard this from Doctor Zorba Pastor on Your Health (Radio Show)
Fresh Ginger is wonderful in asian dishes and stir fry, and it packs a delicious taste which I love especially in peanut sesame noodles.

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.
I purée equal amounts of fresh garlic and ginger. In a storage container this will last forever in your fridge, easy to add these healthy ingredients to salad dressings, stir fry or other dishes!
I used to buy fresh ginger but after I used some, the remaining piece would go bad, now I don't waste money on spoiled ginger and except for sweet foods, ginger/garlic is a great combination in many recipes.
