If you ever get a hold of a fresh ginger root with skin still attached, you know that the root can be quite knotty (irregular shapes) most of the times. Trying to peel the skin of a knotty ginger root using a vegetable peeler is quite frustrating (at least to me) and honestly speaking, almost impossible. I can hardly get the skin off the ginger and ended up have to cut them into smaller pieces and then peel it off and it’s harder when you have to peel small pieces.
Fortunately though, a spoon comes to a rescue. Magic spoon you say ? It’s the regular spoon you and I have in our kitchen. The one that we often put into our mouth to help us spoon the food into the mouth. Yes..that spoon ! 🙂 All you need to do is to use the edge of the spoon and scrap the skin off the ginger. This will get into small tricky places that the peeler or knife has difficult time get into. Believe me, it works WONDER! and unless you tell me that you have absolutely no spoon around your house, than I have nothing to say 🙂
