Ginger is a powerful tuber that can be used as a medicine or zesty spice.  There is a Chinese saying:
“the older the ginger, the more it bites”. Peel the thin skin with the tip of a teaspoon. It can be used in teas to help with colds and congestion, and it is a zesty addition to everything from cookies to stir-fry.

Preparation Tips

Remove the thin skin with the side of a paring knife or tip of a teaspoon (very fresh ginger may be prepared with the peel still on).

Storage Tips

Ginger freezes really well and will last a long time in the freezer.
