|Cubed ginger ripe for muddling.|
- Wash and dry your ginger as you would any root from the grocery store.
- Cut off any unwanted protuberances. (Note: A nice section of our demo root trims down to a regularly-shaped piece of ginger.)
- If possible, cut off a nice straight piece to use in cubing, a regularly shaped piece will be easy to peel and cut up. Your ginger may have a very irregular shape, so you may have to peel it with a paring knife or a vegetable peeler. Sometimes you can use a Chef’s knife if, due to the symmetry of the piece, it’s easy to cut off the skin.
- Cut the piece into thin slices based on the desired size of the cubes.
- Next, stack the slices and cut them into strips.
- Gather the slices and start cutting off the cubes until the ginger is cubed.
