When I started my blog I thought I could post a weekly tip, it was easy to start with, but I am finding now I do not have the same time as I had, so decided to just post them when they arise, or when I come across a tip that I think would be of interest to others. This is my first one.
You can freeze ginger root by peeling it first, then put in freezer bag. When you need fresh ginger just take out freezer and it is easy to grate. This is convenient and saves money, before I did this I cannot count the amount of ginger root I had to throw out, because it went rotten before I had time to use it.
You can also freeze blocks of Parmesan and grate when you need, convenient and cost effective as cheese goes off quite quickly.
