Cooking With Ginger: The Types of Ginger & a Simple Trick for Peeling It! by Chef Gigi Gaggero, Host of KSCU 103.3 FM LIVE Food Talk Radio S.F. Bay Area
Do you use ginger in your cooking? You should! There are so many delicious recipes and unique uses for ginger, and it comes in a few recognizable forms.
- Ground ginger is more commonly used in recipes like ginger cookies and cakes.
- Fresh ginger, which comes in surprisingly fun-shaped pieces, is used for things like candied ginger, ginger syrup and tea. Fresh ginger can be substituted for ground ginger at a ratio of 6 to 1.
Ginger can be tricky to peel with all its bumps and irregularities. Rather than using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, reach for the spoon. Scrape it against the skin and it'll come right off, following every contour and minimizing waste.
