Andrew Zimmern Cooks: How to Prep Ginger


What’s the easiest way to peel fresh ginger?

The best tool for prepping ginger is something I guarantee you have in your kitchen cabinet: a spoon.¬†Because the irregular-shaped root has thin, delicate skin, a spoon can easily scrape it away without much waste.¬†It’s also much easier to get into all of the nooks and crannies with a spoon than a conventional vegetable peeler or knife.


Ready to cook? Here are a few of my favorite ginger-infused recipes:
