Cooking With Ginger: The Types of Ginger & a Simple Trick for Peeling It!

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.

Love cooking with ginger. I buy ground, fresh and there's a brand of frozen fresh ginger. It comes in little cubes. Very convenient. Thanks for the tip on peeling it! Chef Gigi Gaggero
