Fresh ginger is a tasty and healthy addition to all kinds of meals and beverages. But those knobby roots can quickly
dry up, which can be frustrating—not too mention a waste
of money.

It’s easy to keep ginger fresh with this trick: as soon as you get fresh ginger home from the store, peel it and cut it into
several smaller chunks. Put the chunks into a small plastic
bag, and freeze the herb for use at any time. Not only will you always have fresh ginger on hand when you need it, but freezing the root makes it easier to grate.
