I have a bag full of ginger but not sure what I can do with it? Have made a dressing so far and i dont like ginger cake and we dont eat curry/dhals etc. . Not sure how to preserve it. Any ideas will be appreciated

Powdered ginger? You can freeze it to keep it fresh for longer.

You can freeze it then just chop off what you need.
Jamie Oliver has a nice ginger beer recipe.
Do you like stir fries?

A little in a stir fry is good. Or put some in some apples for a lovely pie filling. I would have thought you could freeze it....

How do you powder the ginger, bad kitten? Can you freeze it whole, do i need to blanche it at all.

oh if its whole ginger then just freeze it whole and grate what you need when you need it.

I always fancied making crystallised ginger . It is supposed to be very good for nausea so would make a great gift for a pregnant friend.
