Your Freebie Quick-Reference: Ginger FAQs

Q: How do I select high quality ginger from the market?

A: Choose ginger that has a smooth even texture with a light brown color. It should be firm, plump and dry. Avoid ginger that is wilted or soft. Watch out for punctures or bruises, which can lead to mold. At home, when you peel the ginger, the flesh should be a bright yellow color. A grayish color suggests the ginger is rotten. Organic ginger has the highest quality and flavor.  

Q: How should I store ginger?

A: Generally, you can store fresh ginger in a dry place away from sunlight, such as your pantry. Do not remove the skin until you prepare it to cook or eat. To preserve it longer, keep it in an airtight bag or container in the refrigerator or freezer. Ginger should be prepared for the freezer. Peel, wash, and slice the ginger into strips.  

Q: How long does ginger stay fresh?

A: Fresh ginger lasts about a week in the pantry, a month in the refrigerator and several months in the freezer.
