Hello, this is Coreen from Shakes Bakes and right now we're going to talk about storing fresh ginger. I'm going to show you two ways to do this but here are some things that you need to get started. We need ginger, fresh ginger, peeled or unpeeled is fine, a paper towel, a paper bag, a plastic bag, a Ziploc bag. You can use plastic wrap in lieu of a plastic bag but I'm using what I have on hand. The first thing we're going to do is we're going to take a paper towel and wrap our ginger pieces. Now, this method right here is good for storing up to three weeks in the refrigerator. So, I just wrap my ginger like so, peeled up unpeeled, it doesn't matter. I put it into my paper bag like that and I store it in the refrigerator like this. I can write ginger across here and that will help me identify what's in this bag. Again, this can be only stored for up to three weeks. If you're interested in storing your ginger, your fresh ginger for more than three weeks, I have another method. I'll demonstrate that now. You take your fresh ginger, peeled or unpeeled and you can take your Cling Wrap, your plastic wrap, I have a plastic bag, that's what I'm going to use, one of those from the produce section at the grocery store and I simply put my ginger in there and I wrap it up like so after which I take it and I put it into my plastic gag, a Ziploc bag, and I start sealing. When I get to the end, I'm going to try and get out as much of the air as I can like this, then I go ahead and seal it and I just roll it around, roll it around itself and I'm able to label it right here and this is how you store it in the freezer when you plan to keep your ginger for more than two weeks. Again, these are two methods on how to store fresh ginger.
