It's really handy - but definitely hard to find.

Take the advice you once gave to me, and shut up already.

I could be misremembering, but I believe I’ve seen frozen ginger cubes at Spring Garden Market. Though they were not an Italian brand.

Really? Thanks for the tip - I've been meaning to go there.

Are we really taking the response of "that's so pedestrian" to a comment about ground ginger as a serious comment? Has nobody gotten their Valentine's chocolates yet? So much anger, people. So much anger.

I think she did not see your signature as "Lovey" lovey!

When I buy ginger root (yes it's a root...only us true snobs know that), I usually just buy a big piece and then peel it, throw it in the food processor, and then put it into ice cube trays. After a day or so I take the ginger cubes out of the tray and throw them in a freezer bag. Each ice cub spot yields about a TBSP and I usually have way more ginger than whatever the recipe calls for. I figure I'm usually gonna chop it up anyway, so might as well do it all at once.

I did that once- but I forgot to mark it and someone threw it away because it "looked gross"...lol

Oh, I'm so sorry. You are correct, I didn't realize it was supposed to be funny. :)
