How to Peel, Chop, and Grate Ginger?
Ginger is one of my favorite spices that is well-known for various health benefits. Here are some benefits given below:
Removes Excess Gas
Relieves Muscle Pain
The ginger will last longer if it’s stored in a plastic bag or container in the refrigerator. However, you should peel, cut or grate it only before using it. Now the question is, do you know how to peel ginger? Here’s a very easy way that I can show you.
First, hold a piece of ginger root in one hand and the spoon in the other hand. Scrape the edge of the spoon against the ginger to peel off the skin. If your ginger has thin skin, you don’t need to peel it but older ginger has more papery skin so you need to peel it. After peeling off the skin, you can chop or grate the ginger.
Chopping or Slicing Ginger
Start by peeling off the ginger, then slice the ginger across the fibers to cut it into planks with the knife.
The easiest way to grate a ginger is to use a microplane grater. First remove the peel, then grate the ginger with the microplane grater.
To cut ginger into match-sticks style, just stack the ginger planks and slice them into thin strips.
