Fresh gingerroot can be wrapped tightly and frozen for up to 4 months. Grate it straight from the freezer as needed.
Serve with hot cooked rice that has been made with canned coconut milk (not cream of coconut) instead of water. Stir in a dash of ground turmeric for a rich golden color. Add a side salad of sliced cucumbers drizzled with vinaigrette and sprinkled with chopped red onion for a true Thai-inspired meal.
