Keep Ginger Root Fresh

I love to cook with fresh ingredients when I can. Here is a tip I discovered while running my studio kitchen. Peel fresh ginger root with the round end of a  spoon (keeps you from peeling off skin and works great). Then place the whole peeled ginger root in a plastic zip lock bag or glass jar and submerge it in vodka. I buy the cheapest vodka I can find. This will preserve the ginger. If you want to save time, mince the ginger in your food processor and then add vodka.  With minced ginger just place  measuring spoon in bag, squeeze out the vodka  so excess will go back in the bag.  Ginger will  stay fresh for months.
