Ginger Tip

One of my favorite tools in my kitchen is my microplaner. It is good for garlic, cheese, nutmeg, and lemon, to name a few. Recently I was watching Chef at Home, with Chef Michael Smith and he offered a tip which I tried and LOVE and that is to freeze fresh ginger root and then grate it for use. This is brilliant, so I wanted to share. Perfect for tea, sauces and of course gingerbread. No stringy bits or chunks, no need to peel it or anything, just freeze and grate. One thing I would note is if you are adding it to baking, I would add it to the wet ingredients rather than the dry.

Yummy!!! Have to say I really like your suggestions for this fun tool. Haven't grated my fingers yet but knock on wood.
My favorite is how smooth the little nut meg is after grinding.
