Expert Tips

  • Fresh gingerroot resembles a gnarled tan-colored root. It adds a distinctive pungency and aroma to foods and is used extensively in dishes of the Far East. To prepare, use a small sharp knife to peel the tough skin and then finely chop the gingerroot into pieces.
  • Cooking the beans in boiling water and then rinsing them in cold water will bring out their bright color.
