Tip: Peeling Ginger
Like to use ginger in your food, but hate to try and peel it with a potato peeler? Or perhaps you slice off the sides and then end up using only about 40% of what you bought, because you cut off all the little knobs?
A little tip is to use a large serving spoon as a peeler. Just hold the ginger root the same way you would if you were going to peel it with a potato peeler and then turn the spoon upside-down and scrap against the ginger root, away from you, lightly and quickly, to easily remove the unwanted, bitter skin.
It will take you half the time it would take to use a peeler or knife and you get to use about 99% of the ginger that you bought!
