Fresh Ginger has a thin skin that preserves a peppery, slightly sweet-hot taste that can vary greatly depending on where it originated: China, Thailand, Hawaii or Jamaica.
When selecting choose mature Ginger with a smooth skin. Avoid wrinkled skin as it may sometimes indicate the root is dry and somewhat older. It should have a spicy and fresh fragrance. If tightly wrapped, fresh Ginger can be refrigerated for up to a week and frozen for up to 2 months.
