recently, I fixed some yogurt for a chinese friend of mine. My latest way to fix yogurt is to grate fresh ginger into plain yogurt, and add sweetener. oh! it is so good! My friend was surprised, and she uses ginger all the time and eats yogurt, but hadn't tried combining the two.
so, I'm peeling the ginger using a knife and slicing off the skin. and my friend says.. what are you doing? here, let me show you an easier way.
so, she wets the ginger, takes my little paring knife and scrapes off the outer peel. and it comes off pretty easy! A lot easier than the way I was doing it.
well, you learn something new every day!
you still have to cut off the knots, but once you do that, you can wet it and scrape it pretty easy.
use a knife with a blade with a straight edge. and I find the smaller paring knife easier to use than a bigger knife.
try peeling some ginger, the grating 1/2 tsp to a tsp of ginger (I love the taste, but it might be too strong for some) in the yogurt and add sweetener. Yum!
