What is fresh ginger?
Available year around in the produce section of your grocery store, fresh ginger is a subtropical plant that is grown for it's underground stem or nobby root, referred to as a rhizome.

When selecting a piece of ginger, look for firm roots with "fingers" that feel heavy for their size.

What does fresh ginger taste like?
Ginger contains peppery notes along with a hint of sweetness. Ginger adds zest to your recipe along with a spicy heat. When cooking fresh ginger, mouth-watering aromatics are released.
Can I substitute ground ginger for fresh ginger?
Although the flavor of fresh ginger and ground ginger can be very different....if you must...you can substitute 1/4 tsp ground ginger for the 2 Tbs. fresh grated ginger in the recipe. But I strongly urge you to use fresh ginger....you won't regret it!
What is baby ginger?
There is also such a thing as baby ginger. I actually just discovered it recently at a farmers market. It is very unusual to come across baby ginger and so I had never encountered it before. I was fascinated to hear all about it from the farmer.
- is pearl white in color
- is the freshest ginger available
- has it's leaves and stalk still attached
- has bright green leaves and stalks
- has tall and slender stalks
- tastes much milder that the more mature ginger we are used to using
- is a very rare sight
- is also quite pricey
I am so happy that I got to see it in person. From the photo above you can see that it is not as woody as the ginger in your produce department and the stalks and leaves are bright green, tall and slender.
