Ginger can also be ground into juice and used as a dipping sauce, and tender ginger with more water is the most suitable. Ginger can also be pickled into kimchi. And cooking chicken wine, ginger duck will use old ginger. Ginger will be sliced, shredded, or chopped into minced ginger depending on the type of dish. Since the aroma of ginger is not heat-resistant, the cooking time should not be too long.
