My mother is going to love this tip for leftover ginger. We have both purchased fresh ginger many times and then been disappointed when you pull it out to use it for another recipe a few days later and it’s no longer good.
I was reading the latest issue of Rachael Ray’s “Everyday” magazine and I came across this tip. Take the leftover ginger and peel it, then roughly chop it up. It doesn’t have to be too small. Throw it in your blender with about 3/4 cup water and blend it up until it’s relatively smooth. Pour the remainder into an ice cube tray and freeze it. Then you always have it the next time you need it!
I do not have an ice cube tray since our freezer is already equipped with an ice maker. So, I used those baby Tupperware pieces that I can never seem to find a good use for.
