All those little nooks and nubs make peeling ginger with a paring knife a veritable finger tip-threatening nightmare. And think of the waste! Intolerable. Here's how we tackle the challenge with nothing more than a small spoon (a hotly debated method): you use the spoon's edge to quickly scrape away the root's surprisingly thin skin. It's so safe you could even enlist the wee folk for this task!
We love cooking, and we hope you'll hang out with us at Food52!
