The recipe for Stir-Fried Snow Peas with Shiitakes & Ginger  calls for ginger cut into very fine julienne. Here’s how to do it (this method works for thicker julienne, too just make the cuts a little wider).

1. Peel the ginger with a paring knife or by scraping off the skin with the side of a spoon. 2. Slice the ginger very thinly lengthwise. Stack several of the slices and then shingle them. 3. Thinly slice down the row of shingles to make your julienne.
