I learned today’s easy kitchen hack from Fresh & Easy. Did you know that you could freeze fresh ginger? When you buy a knob of fresh ginger, just peel it and then freeze it. Frozen ginger grates beautifully. It also lasts longer when it is frozen.

I love to collect kitchen hacks the way some people collect coins. I save them, organize them, and love to share them with my readers. And thanks to Pinterest, I have an easy way to find what I used to jot down on scraps of paper!

The skin is so thin that I just used the tip of a spoon to get around the nooks and crannies without wasting any ginger. Before discarding the peels, put a few down your garbage disposal to make the house smell great. You can also use the peels to make a foot soak.

I like to freeze fresh fruits and vegetables to use in my smoothies. Now it is easy to add a little bit of frozen ginger too.

The ginger plant has a pungent, spicy taste that is used as a staple flavoring in many cuisines. I like to use it in stir-fry recipes. Now that the holidays are coming,  I want to try making candied ginger. Have you tried making this at home?

In addition, ginger may help relieve nausea and morning sickness. Drinking ginger tea for an upset stomach is a time-tested remedy going back to grandma’s day.

Now ginger is not the prettiest of roots. I think it looks like monster toes. These two knobs of fresh ginger that I purchased at Fresh & Easy will last me a long time.
