Expert Tips

Fresh unpeeled gingerroot, tightly wrapped, can be frozen up to 6 months. To use, slice off a piece of frozen ginger and return the rest to the freezer.

Curry powder is a blend of several spices, such as turmeric, coriander, cumin and fenugreek. To ensure maximum freshness and flavor, keep ground spices for only 1 year.
