There may be a lot of wonders of ginger, but one must be careful in storing this wonder spice to keep its freshness and quality. Ground, crystallized, and dried ginger should be kept in an airtight container and stored on a cool, dark shelf. On the other hand, pickled ginger should be kept in its original jar and stored in the refrigerator.
Fresh, unpeeled roots should be wrapped in paper towels, and placed in a plastic bag. These can be stored in the fridge for up to three weeks. You can also freeze ginger roots for up to two months. When I use frozen ginger, I simply grate or slice it unthawed.
For peeled ginger, you can still store them by placing them in a jar of sherry wine or vodka, and they'll still be good for several weeks. Just make sure to dispose of it when the alcohol becomes cloudy because it might mean there's mold or bacteria.
Ginger has always been used to enhance the aroma and flavor of food. But the wonders of ginger don't end in just being a spice. On its own, ginger is used in herbal medicine to help treat and reduce symptoms of certain ailments. Because it is rich in antioxidants, this will benefit your body in the best possible way. Don't miss out on a delicious way to boost your health!
