Test Kitchen tips: Fresh ginger juice
A splash of ginger juice can add fresh flavor and zing to a number of recipes, whether you're looking to brighten a marinade or vinaigrette, or want to add a little something extra to your secret barbecue sauce or signature cocktail mix.
To make your own ginger juice, puree chopped fresh ginger in a food processor or blender, or grate the root using a cheese grater, microplane or ginger grater. Wrap the shredded root in cheesecloth or a thin linen towel and press to squeeze out the juice. You can also juice frozen ginger: Simply grate the frozen root, then wrap it up and squeeze out the juice. Voila.
