I bought a bag of fresh ginger from the market to cook with, I've made a couple of things and still have 14oz left. Normally I'd make ginger beer but I'm not drinking alcohol at the moment. Besides that and grating it then freezing in handy spoonfuls does anyone have any good ideas? Sweet or savoury, I don't mind.

Non-alcoholic ginger beer?
Candy it?

When I had access to a juicer, I'd juice it and shoot it by the ounce. Good sort of burning.

Ginger ale! I saw on some blog the other day someone who made ginger paste and then mixed it into sparkling water whenever they were in the mood. Easy ginger ale, seems like a good idea. Sorry I can't remember which blog, though.

Crystallized ginger!

Carrot, apple, ginger juice is also my favorite juice.

What about a salad dressing or a ginger-carrot soup?

Oh, I remember that thread! No, I don't think I'll be using it for that just at the moment!

You need to find a nice innocent vegan boy (or girl) to corrupt, quickly before it goes off!

(I'll stop posting in this thread now :p )

I am another crystallized ginger supporter. Plus, the sugar syrup you boil the ginger in gives you ginger syrup (which I posted about in the food forum recently).
