Introduction: A Better Way to Peel Ginger

The outside of ginger is paper thin and using a vegetable peeler or a knife removes more precious ginger meat than is necessary.  An ordinary kitchen teaspoon will work remarkably well.

Step 1:

Take a metal teaspoon and with a small amount of pressure, scrape the skin from one end to the other.  Continue all the way around the piece of ginger until all of the skin is removed.

Step 2:

You now have a clean piece of ginger, ready to slice, dice or grate.
