What would you like to do?
Answer Depends on the recipe. Ginger has a distinct flavour and nothing will taste similar. If you are talking a gingerbread or ginger cookie recipe I woul…d just add more of the cinnamon, cloves, allspice, mace or nutmeg that also go into those types of foods. If you are talking hot ginger or fresh ginger you might be able to get away with adding some paprika or pepper seeds or pepper extracts for the heat and some nutmeg for the sweetness. If you are talking the pickled ginger you eat with sushi, I can't help you. I have a question for you though, why would you want to leave it out?
Gingerroot (1 Tbsp. minced) 1/8 tsp. ground ginger powder or 1 Tbsp. rinsed and chopped candied ginger
How much ground ginger not powdered ginger do you use in place of one and a half teaspoons of fresh grated ginger?
Avoid doing this. The proportions unbalance a recipe when you substitute ground for freshly grated ginger.
Ground ginger can NOT be substituted for crystallized ginger--that is something quite different. Otherwise, you are fairly safe to use ground, minced, and grated ginger interc…hangeably unless the ginger is being used for garnish purposes (sushi, for instance). The thing to remember is that ground ginger is exponentially more potent than fresh ginger. Ultimately it comes down to a matter of personal taste, but I rarely use more than a few pinches of the ground stuff.
Can you substitute ginger paste for fresh grated ginger will the taste change what are the proportions?

Dry is always more potent, as long as your spices are not old. If you have "fresh" dry ginger, 1 teaspoon would be the right amount to substitute for 2 tablespoons of fresh gi…nger. Since ginger is something that loses its potency in dry form very quickly, the best possible answer to this question is "to taste."
Gingers are funny because they are different. Hehe
I would just use the same amount because ginger paste is basically really finely miced ginger. Maybe cut down a slight amount if your not a huge fan of ginger.
Depending on where you are and which store you go to, the average cost would be about $2.99. It could be more or less depending on where you live, but for the most part it wou…ld be around this amount. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The ginger root can be bought fresh at your grocer. It has a short life for freshness. It comes in a variety of piece-sizes. If you are not sure you will like it, ask your produce manager for the smallest piece he has. It runs about $2.99 per measure, could be by quarter pound or ounce weight. Just ask your grocer. I find I can use what I need, then i can chop it like fresh garlic and freeze it or simply slice it and freeze it. It does mold quickly. Hence, most recipes for baking asking for the ginger in powdered state.
Recipe calls for 2 tablespoon fresh grated ginger only have 1 tablespoon can you substitute with ground ginger?
Yes you may use ground ginger to replace fresh ginger.
I don't think anything really taste like ginger, so to my knowledge there is no substitute. Since I am a maniac with trying different things I would probably go for a double …amount of peeled sliced apple sprinkled with cinnamon. It surely does not taste like Ginger, but it will add taste to it. Depending on ones tastebuds, the result will be niiiice or baaad or maybe in between.
Sources vary. One source says 1 tbsp fresh equals 1/4 tsp ground, another says 1 tbsp fresh equals 1/8 tsp ground (half as much!). So I translate them to either 1/12 tsp of gr…ound or even less (because there are three teaspoons in a tablespoon). How about a few shakes from the jar? That's what I do when the recipe says one teaspoon freshly ground and it hasn't ruined anything yet.
Yes, but you will not use the same amount listed the recipe. It'd be like using shredded Parmesan instead of grated Parmesan. When ground, it takes up less space, so you will …need to use more minced ginger. I'm not positive about the conversion, but it's usually something like 1Tbsp equals 1tsp for minced to ground conversions.
1 tablespoon ginger root the same as 1 tablespoon of ginger paste
Ginger (Fresh) 1 tablespoon, grated or chopped equals a 1-inch piece
About 1% is raw ginger root. Nearer to 2% in ground ginger
