Frozen ginger paste

From Cookipedia

(Redirected from Ginger paste)

This simple mixture of fresh crushed Ginger is the cornerstone of many Indian recipes.

This mixture will keep for 3 days if kept in the fridge, or many months if frozen in useful sized measures.

To freeze, use spoons to measure out separate 'servings' on to a non-stick oven tray, place the tray in the freezer and then bag-up once the Ginger paste has frozen solid.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
