Cooking Tip Thursdays: Peeling Ginger

Cooking Tip Thursdays is dedicated to making time in the kitchen quicker, easier, and just plain better….

If you’re peeling carrots, potatoes, cucumbers, or even beets, I can’t think of anything I’d rather use than the quintessential kitchen peeler.  When it comes to ginger though, while using a peeler may seem intuitive, it actually wastes part of the aromatic goodness and takes more time than necessary. There is an easier and quicker solution. Use a spoon.
