How To Freeze Young Ginger

Our ginger harvest is close to completion but that's no reason not to enjoy Ohio-grown young ginger year-round. We find that freezing it preserves the flavor and allows for the greatest versatility. Here's how:

1. Clean ginger. We prefer to do this with a vegetable brush under running water.

2. Allow ginger to air dry or dry with a towel.

3. Place in an air tight container or plastic bag. Store in the freezer for up to six months.
