Ginger - Make Juice

Fresh ginger juice can be used in baking recipes, and you can make your own. Add it in as a flavoring to the recipe. It lends a subtle, but another peppery layer of notes to whatever you have already added ginger powder to.

We use this how to baking technique with the Savory French Macaron Hors d'oeuvres Recipe Tutorial.

1. Peel the ginger with a peeler to about where you need to grate it.

2. Grate about 3 tablespoons of fresh ginger with a microplane or a grater with fine graters.
NOTE: We store our fresh ginger in the freezer. Grating it with a microplane, while still frozen, works beautifully!

2. Put the grated ginger in a paper towel, fold up the towel and squeeze HARD to extract the juice from the ginger pulp.

3. Measure out 1/2 teaspoon of ginger juice needed for the recipe, and place in a separate bowl. Discard the ginger pulp.
Store any extra juice in the refrigerator for a few days.
