Something I stumbled upon by accident for those who don’t want it soaked in anything.
Just take your hand of ginger and brake off whatever size you need to use and don’t put it into any container or wrapper, leave as is and store on shelf of refrigerator next to a cup of baking soda. I don’t know how long this will make it last but I do know I purchased one hand and used it infrequently over a 2 month period and never lost its flavor, didn’t dry out and all was used up. There must be something about it being in proximity to the Baking soda that does it
I am currently trying a box of organic cranberries near it now. 🙂
