How to Peel Ginger

Simple Tip: Peel Ginger With a Spoon

A couple of weeks ago, I had a very hard time peeling fresh ginger. It was so nubby, I had to cut chunks off before I could properly peel it with my everyday vegetable peeler. I felt so bad about wasting so much ginger that over the weekend, when I needed to peel lots of it for a cocktail, I decided to try a new technique. Instead of using a peeler or knife, I scrapped the rough, papery skin off with a small spoon. It worked like magic! Now, I'll always peel ginger with a spoon.
