I bought a massive bowl of fresh ginger yesterday from the market purely because it was a pound and I can't walk past a bargain, the only problem is is.that I have no idea what to do with it- can anyone please help?

This recipe is delicious

I make ginger and lemon 'tea' - hot water, sliced lemon and a little bit of ginger, sweetened to taste.

mix with chilli and garlic as a topping for fish or chicken

Add to stir fry's

Cut it into smaller pieces and freeze until needed.

Nigella has a fab recipe for fresh gingerbread with Lemon icing. It's in How to be a domestic goddess, or Google it (sorry can't link as on phone)

Thanks for the replies everyone, the beef and ginger stirfry and the ginger and chilli marinade will be the first to try I think but the others are fantastic too smile

I will be freezing too as there really is a load!

ginger lemonade.
cut off a few thin sliced and boil it in a little water to release the flavour. take out the ginger, dissolve sugar in the still warm liquid and add some lemon peel.
for one pitch I use the juice of o couple of lemons, the ginger/sugar infusion then fill up with water or sparkling water.

This is what I cook when I feel unwell - chicken pieces with A LOT of ginger: chop up ginger (or grate them), fry a bit in sesame + sunflower oil, fry with chicken, add rice wine/stock with or without soya sauce depending on what colour food you fancy, stew a while, season. Eat with rice. Infuses a sense of well-being.

I chuck it in the freezer & grate when needed.
