I love cooking with fresh ginger. But ginger goes bad so fast before you ever get a chance to use it all. So a great way to save some time and money is make a ginger paste and freeze it, all you have to do is pop it out when you need it and wow you have fresh already done ginger. You can also do this with herbs and garlic, I do.
Just chop your ginger up and add it into a food processor or blender with a bit of water, you want a smooth puree. Place the tray in a plastic freezer bag. When you need some for a recipe simply pop a piece out and there you go.
