Just The Tip: How To Peel Ginger

Happy Wednesday, friends.

I trust everyone is recovering decently from the Memorial Day festivities? Maybe? I caught a 5:45am flight back from Maine yesterday, and it’s taking me a little longer than usual to get normal. I have consumed a borderline disturbing amount of kale in the past 24 hours though, so fingies crossed the magic kicks in soon.

Given the short week, I thought we’d mix things up and do a special Hump Day presentation of Just The Tip, so that we can get casual on Friday with some summery c-tails. Cool? Thanks.

In today’s episode, I’m showing you the quickest, most foolproof way to peel ginger. Put down the knives and vegetable peelers, peeps! All you need to remove ginger’s delicate papery, skin without wasting any of the usable root is…

A SPOON!

(I was going to say, “You have to watch the video to find out!” Then I realized there’s a spoon in the video image. Dammit. But you should still watch and learn.)

And just in case you’re itching to practice your ginger-peeling skills after watching this video, I’ve compiled a few of my favorite gingery recipes below.
