Ginger Selection : 

Look for ginger root that is solid and has a smooth, wrinkle-free outer peel.It’s already starting to disintegrate if you detect creases.Make sure there are no traces of mold on the ends.While you may be able to remove those stains, it will not last and will not be worth your money.Shop at an international market for the freshest ginger root because they have a larger turnover and typically better costs than a grocery store.

Ginger Storage : 

Refrigerator Storage : It’s best to keep ginger whole, with the skin still on, in the refrigerator.Cut ginger may be kept in the refrigerator, but it won’t last as long.Place your ginger in a freezer bag, squeeze out most of the air, and store it in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator to extend its shelf life.If you don’t have any freezer bags or time, put it in the refrigerator in the brown paper bag it came in.This manner, it should last around a week.

Freezing :Put the ginger root in the freezer with the peel on to keep it fresh for a long time.To avoid freezer burn, place it in a freezer bag or another freezer-safe container.Pull the ginger out whenever you need fresh ginger for a dish, grate what you need, and return the remainder of the root to the freezer.It’s not necessary to defrost the ginger beforehand since frozen ginger is much simpler to peel.
