I love the taste of ginger in my juice!  It is a very strong flavor so take it easy on your first juice to be sure you understand the strength and taste.  It is also an ingredient in my “mommy soak.”

When Buying Fresh Ginger: Try to find ginger that is firm and has smooth skin. Try to avoid ginger with wrinkled skin, soft spots, or any mold.

When Using Ginger: Ginger is most beneficial when grated or pressed in a garlic press. You can also slice it. I like to use a citrus zester to grate my ginger.

When Storing Ginger: Peel it & freeze it. I used to have to throw my fresh ginger out because it never stayed good long enough. Then, I stumbled upon this tip: Peel all of the ginger right when you get home. Wrap it in plastic and freeze until you are ready to use. Not only does it retain most of its freshness, but it is much easier to slice and grate when it is frozen.
