What part of ginger plant is used to make spice?

Asked by Wiki User

The bulbous parts you see in shops are actually called 'Rhizomes', however most places call them 'ginger root' to avoid confusion(the actual roots grow out of the Rhizomes, and they are rarely used in food).

The leaves can be used to flavour food, and the flowers are also edible.

Can chickens eat ginger root?

Yes, rabbits can eat horseradish leaves.

Horseradish is a cruciferous plant, and some rabbits are sensitive to these plants because they get gas. Gas in rabbits can actually be very serious, even deadly. You might want to limit cruciferous plants and if your rabbit gets gas easily, avoid these foods entirely.

Can ground ginger be used in a recipe that calls for minced ginger?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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 interchangeably 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.

How long can fresh ginger be left in water in the fridge?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

How long your fresh ginger lasts depends on how fresh it was when you bought it. Soft, wrinkle-free ginger with translucent pink or yellow skin is ideal. Buy only as much as you expect to consume within a week.

Use a paper towel to rub moisture off of the ginger's surface.

Place the ginger in a brown paper bag. Seal the bag tightly. Brown paper bags keep moisture and light away from its contents.

Make room in your refrigerator's vegetable crisper for the ginger. Put your ginger in the back of crisper where it will remain undisturbed. The backs of vegetable crispers are usually colder and less susceptible to light.

Keep the ginger in the vegetable crisper for up to 2 weeks.

How do you preserve ginger root?

As ginger is a tropical plant you need to replicate those conditions as much as possible if that's not your conditions. Warmth and plenty of water are the keys. It would need protection in winter too.

Using a piece of fresh shop ginger plant it in a large pot with rich soil and just cover. HOPEFULLY shoots will soon appear. Keep in humid conditions and don't panic if it dies off in winter and then either does or doesn't reshoot again.

It may need some light.Please try to improve this text.

How much ground ginger for 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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 ginger.

Since ginger is something that loses its potency in dry form very quickly, the best possible answer to this question is "to taste."
