The other day I was at Jo’s house for dinner and caught her prepping some fresh ginger root to add to the food she was cooking. I saw her grab a knife to peel the ginger and I stopped her right away and told her to use a spoon instead. She thought I was joking at first, but after just a few seconds with the spoon in her hand, she was a believer.

That’s right. A spoon is the perfect tool for peeling fresh ginger. Just hold the spoon firmly in your hand and scrape the edge along the surface of the ginger. The skin will peel away quickly and easily, with very little effort.

Even the lumpy bumps of a ginger root are easy to peel with a spoon, and you’ll be left with a beautiful piece of peeled ginger and almost zero waste.

    I have not tried this task with a regular spoon. But, I do use a grapefruit spoon, which has serrated edges, to peel my ginger root. Much better than a knife!

    It seems like we need a post on the wonders of the grapefruit spoon! I use mine to hollow out baked potatoes to make twice baked potatoes.

    Handy! I usually use the back of a knife or lightly scrape with the blade edge to get the skin off. I also use flat blades and spoons to crush garlic, so the spoon’s already on the counter. [Garlic and Ginger are the gods in our house; we rarely cook without them]

    I’ll have to try this tip to show off my 1337 cooking skills. Thanks a bunch!
