Did you know that you can freeze ginger?
No longer do you have to worry about your beloved ginger shriveling up and drying out before you can use all of it. Frozen ginger lasts much longer and it is easier to grate too — bonus!
Simply place the unpeeled ginger in a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer for up to 6 months (source).
Another interesting tidbit about ginger is that you can peel it with the edge of a spoon. I learned this from the queen of vegan cookbooks herself, Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
