    Peel it with a peeler. Or leave the skin on and grate it on a microplane.

    Use a spoon. Shouldn't take off much more than the skin.

      Do this OP. It's one of the only "kitchen hacks" that actually works, it's way easier and less wasteful than trying to slice it off

        Don't even bother, just fricking grate it. You're not going to taste or otherwise notice the skin at all.

          I tried that and the skin was still noticeable. It's kind of tough and fibrous.

            spoon peeling ginger is one of the very few le epic life hacks that actually works

            peel the part you want and chop it off
            its easy enough to peel more of it off another time

    I cut it with a knife and accept that I'm wasting 40% of it. Not like it matters, whatever I don't use will go moldy in like a week anyway.

      You can freeze it and just grate what you need while it's still frozen.

            mine don't mold. If they mold that means they either were moldy already or you got mold in your room.

      ginger is one of the few things that wont go moldy easily. it can stay at room temperature for a month without molding. You should keep it in the fridge to stop it from drying too fast

      Real Asian grandmothers use a spoon.

      >whatever I don't use will go moldy in like a week anyway.
      It shouldn't get moldy, but I always store ginger in plastic bags in the fridge. It stays fresh much longer that way.

      Ginger should be juicy and aromatic. You buy them from the store basically just having been dug up and cut from a live plant. If yours is "dried," then it's not suitable for eating.

    I don't scrape it, I use surgical scissors and cut it up. It's a waste of time to scrape that stuff.

    Scrape with a sharp knife (DON'T CUT, SCRAPE). Peelers are garbo and take way too much off.

    You don’t need to use a spoon or anything like that that just makes mess, get some knife skills don’t be one of those dumb boomer tv chefs who points out the spoon.trick and acts like it’s ingenious. Do you think Chinese chefs use spoons to peel ginger?

      >Do you think Chinese chefs use spoons to peel ginger?
      This is a correct statement that is incorrectly punctuated.

      Ginger has an irregular surface geometry, and much of the juiciest parts of the root are in the outer layer, toward the skin, so preserving as much juicy flesh is desirable and correct. A spoon wastes the least ginger, and also takes the least time and effort. You'd have to be moronic to use a knife to peel ginger.

      Do not do this
      >put ginger in a garlic press

      >>put ginger in a garlic press
      up with ginger juice in a bowl and smashed ginger
      It's fine if that's what you want, and in a lot of cases, it is, such as when you're making a lot of Asian marinades.
