Please save me from having to hand-mince ginger.

  1. It's getting cold early here so I want to make gingerbread with fresh minced ginger. I have a terrific low-fat recipe.

    But I hate chopping and mincing. I've tried the food processor but the ginger pulp just makes a mess. Should I try peeling the ginger, then freezing it, then putting it through the food processor? Would that work?

    In my old town, I could buy jars of minced fresh ginger for cooking. That was great.

    Or might you know an online place where I could buy minced fresh ginger?

    Take pity on me, please!

  6. Microplane grater works okay, but it still comes out kind of mushy.
     
  7. Thanks, gals, for your tips.

    I bought the fresh ginger yesterday. I will try the peel, freeze, process method this week.

    THANKS!
     
  8. If you are in Canada there are frozen cubes of many herbs and spices called Toppits. You can go on Toppits.com to find out where to buy them.
