Fresh gingerroot resembles a gnarled tan-colored root. It adds a distinctive pungency and aroma to foods and is used extensively in dishes of the Far East. To prepare, use a small sharp knife to peel the tough skin and then finely chop the gingerroot into pieces.
Cooking the beans in boiling water and then rinsing them in cold water will bring out their bright color.
