SQUEEZING GINGER FOR GINGER JUICE. When you don’t want to insert the texture of fresh ginger into a recipe, but still want the fresh ginger taste, this is an easy way to juice the ginger!
Wash extra large piece of ginger. Break into 2 or 3 pieces, breaking pieces off at the joints. Place in tightly sealed plastic bag and freeze. When you need ginger juice, remove one of the segments from the freezer and place in bowl to thaw. When totally thawed ginger will be soft. Simply squeeze the ginger over the bowl and the juice will squirt out. Keep squeezing till all liquid has been removed. Either use immediately or pour into small covered jar and refrigerate till ready to use.
Use in salad dressings, stir-fries, rice dishes, soups, desserts etc. in place of fresh chopped ginger or ginger powder.
To make ginger tea, boil water, fill tea cup, then add as much ginger juice as you like.
