Today I’m posting a little tutorial on how to prepare and freeze ginger.
This is especially useful if, like me, you do a lot of Asian recipes that use ginger but is also great for those that have brought a big piece for a single recipe and don’t want to waste the rest.
One heads up, you can not substitute fresh ginger for ground ginger.
It just doesn’t hold the same properties and tastes completely different.
I have seen small packages of frozen minced ginger which are all well and good if you’re lazy but in my opinion you can buy all the fresh ginger you’ll ever need and prepare it like this for the price of one of those teen weeny packages.
So! On to the tutorial!!!
