Tip #1

Ginger is used in cooking around the world to give a flavor boost to both baked goods and main dishes. Fresh gingerroot is a component of Indian curries and Asian stir-fries. In the United States we use mainly the dried ground form in baking products such as gingerbread, cookies and muffins. Dried ground ginger is not a recommended substitute for fresh gingerroot.
