Every now and then a green sprout has shot up from the root, as if it wants to grow. But I’ve been bad about completely neglecting it, and forgetting to add water to the bowl before it dried completely out. When I’d realize it was dry, I’d just pour a little more water in the bowl.
To my surprise, the root has stayed fresh despite my neglect.
I rarely ever use fresh ginger, so it’s nice to know that one root can last for such a long time- even without refrigeration.
Maybe I’ll cut a piece off and plant it in the garden to see how it does.
Do you have a trick for keeping ginger root fresh?
