Two Ways to Freeze Fresh Ginger.

Have you ever thrown out fresh ginger because you didn’t get to it before it started to shrivel up or mold?

Never again!

Here are two easy ways to preserve fresh ginger.


The simplest way is to cut the ginger rhizome into 1-inch chunks.

Use the double-freeze method to prevent the chunks from sticking together:

Freeze in a single layer on a cookie sheet or plate first, then transfer the pieces to freezer bags or containers.

You don’t need to peel the ginger first.

In fact, it will be easier to peel and chop or grate after it is frozen.


The second way is to peel and mince or grate the fresh ginger before freezing.

This takes a little extra work up front, but the result is ready to go straight into recipes without even needing to thaw first.

If you opt for this method, spread a thin layer of the minced or grated ginger in a freezer bag before sealing and freezing.

The double-freeze method doesn’t work as well here.
