Of all the little tricks I know for preparing vegetables, one of the handiest is using a spoon to peel fresh ginger. Most people use a paring knife for this task, but the knife usually ends up trimming off some of the inner good stuff, too.

If you just scrape the side of a spoon along the ginger, the skin comes right off, leaving all the aromatic flesh behind. Try it once and you’ll never go back to using a paring knife.
