Grate And Freeze Fresh Ginger To Keep It Handy When Needed

Ginger-2379

Ginger is one of those items that I hardly use in cooking, but when I need some, I don’t have any, and when I have some, I only use a tiny bit. The rest goes to waste or I store it in the refrigerator only to find it months later all the way in the back all shriveled and dried up.

A coworker gave me a great tip when it comes to storing and using ginger.  She told me to grate it, store it in a freezer bag, and store it in the freezer.  Whenever I needed some. I could just break off  however much I needed.
