Ginger can be very finicky to peel, but it turns out it doesn't have to be. Today, Chef Brad shows us an easier way to peel ginger, using a tool we all have laying around...a spoon!
Hi, I'm Chef Brad and I'm the Executive Chef for Residence Dining at UBC Food Services, and this is how you peel ginger with a spoon.
So, as some of you may already know, trying to peel ginger and not lose half the piece of ginger can be a difficult process.
One of the tricks that I've learned in my years as a chef is: The best tool to peel ginger with is a spoon.
I know it seems fairly simple, but the key to it is the edge isn't too sharp and the skin on ginger is fairly thin. So you can very easily peel the skin off, not taking a lot of the ginger with you, and so you get the most out of each piece of ginger.
And that's how you peel ginger with a spoon!
