Storing Unused Ginger

Ginger 2

How many times have you bought fresh ginger only to use a small portion and the rest goes bad? This has happened to me too many times, so I decided to research how I can store fresh ginger. The method that made the most sense to me was the one where you freeze 1 teaspoon portions of grated ginger.

  1. Peel the ginger using a vegetable peeler.
  2. Grate the ginger.
  3. Pack the ginger in a teaspoon.
  4. Place the “scoop of ginger” on a plate lined with parchment paper.
  5. Put in freezer.
  6. Once frozen, place frozen “scoops” in a plastic bag and put back in freezer. Use within 3 months.
