Ginger its nothing better for pork

Updated on August 5, 2011


A lot of people do not know this but Ginger is available in two forms,,,,young....and mature. The younger ginger has a thin skin that requires no peeling, while mature ginger has tough that must be peeled. It can be grated, ground, slivered, or sliced and used in soups , curries, stir-fries, fruit compotes, gingerbread and gingersnaps.

Now there is a proper way to handle your ginger, you should use a vegetable peeler or a pairing knife to peel ginger. Once peeled, many gadgets are available to finely grate the bumpy fibrous root, Running ginger along the finest holes of a 4-sided box grater or rubbing it along the 400 sharply ridged perforations of a micro plane grater works well. A garlic press is perfect for pressing a small chunk into minced ginger. There's also a porcelain grater, for specifically made for grating ginger. Rubbing ginger back and forth over the rows of small rounded nubs easily cuts through the ginger's flesh while leaving the stringy, fibrous threads attached to the un-grated portion.

So now that you have a little bit of knowledge on the way to handle ginger lets take it up a notch to use ginger by making 2 great tasting pork chop recipes using ginger that I think you will enjoy.
