View Full Version : My tip for peeling Ginger!

If you wish to peel your ginger, use the edge of a spoon! I saw this tip on the telly the other day, and it has already revolutionised my life, well, the bit of it I spend peeling ginger. No more struggling to dangerously wield my knife around the sheer and knobbly protruberances! No more wasting bits of ginger flesh, or bits of my own, with my knife wielding ineptitude! It is the sort of thing that, once you try it, works so well that you are ashamed not to have thought of it yourself. You all probably know about this anyway, but I am new and full of puppyish enthusiasm.

Can you be more specific? Do you just rub the tough outer skin with the spoon's edge? The nubbies too?

Ciera, just hold the spoon near the spoony end, with the concave side facing you, and, moving the spoon towards you, scrape the skin off the ginger with the edge of the concave end of the spoon, which functions as a very blunt knife blade. Same sort of action as if you use a potato peeler. If you have them in the US! The peel comes off surprisingly easily (to me!) and in a very thin layer, so you don't waste any gingery flesh. Try it, and it will come naturally to you! It is easy to manipulate the spoon (teaspoon?) into the knobbly bits.

Thank you, thank you.
That sounds quite easy, and I'm sure it will save a lot of wasted ginger!
