Best way to peel Ginger |- Reduce Muscle Soreness and Wastage


If you, like me – enjoy using ginger in my cooking extensively – this Kitchen Hack on ‘ The best way to peel ginger’ will be useful.

I use ginger in most of my savory cooking. Although sometimes I don’t bother peeling the skin, in dishes like Asian Stir-Fries. In other dishes like curries or to make the all important  Ginger – Garlic paste (A must have in the Indian Kitchen), the ginger simply must be peeled.

Whether you peel a lot of ginger or just a few knobs, it’s always a good idea to waste less. In some parts of the world  fresh Ginger can be quite expensive. Having to peel a lot of ginger  with a knife can often cause muscle soreness. I remember the time I had to peel 6 kg of ginger in one go… towards the end I was just slicing away the precious flesh to get the task over and done with.

This method proved to become a fast favorite. No more Knives or Peelers. Watch the video. I hope this is helpful to some of you.

  • I read somewhere how using sand paper was another method to easily peel ginger. Let me know if you try that. Personally I don’t like the feeling of holding sand paper with my hands, nor do I always have it handy.
