* Tip about Frozen Ginger Root
I keep a large chunk of pre peeled Ginger Root in my freezer that I utilize for easy grating without having to use the cheese grater at all.
I find that when I "saw" the Ginger with my knife while it is frozen, it instantly becomes a very fine powder, thereby eliminating the "string" consistency as well as eliminating the cheese grater.
