How to make ginger powder

  1. Wash the roots and then remove the outer skin with a potato peeler.
  2. At this point grate it and put it in the microwave for about 5 minutes, maximum power. Once this step is complete, mix well and cook in the oven for another 5 minutes. The temperature must always be high, from 180 °C upwards.
  3. Repeat the microwave step again for another 10 minutes, until it is completely dehydrated.
  4. Take a blender, blend everything, and you're done!


As for how to preserve ginger, all you have to do is put it in a well-sealed glass jar and leave it in the pantry . If, on the other hand, there are leftover roots, a good idea may be to freeze them by cutting them into small pieces and sealing them in a transparent bag.
