THREE GINGER POWER SHOT RECIPES - INSPIRED TASTE



Three Ginger Power Shot Recipes - Inspired Taste image

Your body will love these shots. Ginger is excellent for your digestive system and lemon is a powerful immunity booster. In general, you are looking for about 1 teaspoon of ginger juice for each shot. More than that and it’s going to be difficult to drink. We don’t peel ginger before juicing. Simply scrub and rinse the ginger root to remove grit then pass it through your juicer. Since we’re talking about making shot-sized juices — it doesn’t make much sense to get out the juicer every morning. Instead, we’ve gotten into the ritual of juicing a big piece of ginger then keeping it in the fridge and using it over the next few of days.

Total Time 5 minutes

Prep Time 5 minutes

Yield Makes 2 shots

Number Of Ingredients 10

1-inch length piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean
1 large lemon
1-inch length piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean
1 medium carrot, scrubbed clean
1 large lemon
1-inch length piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean
1/2 small green apple, seeds removed
1 cup packed spinach leaves
1 large lemon
Very small pinch cayenne pepper, optional

Steps:

  • Chop everything into thin pieces small enough to easily go through the juicer.
  • Cut away the yellow peel from the lemon, leaving most of the white pith and lemon flesh. Cut into slices and remove any seeds.
  • Turn the juicer on and push everything through, alternating between harder ingredients and the softer lemon, apple or spinach (if using). Divide the juice between small glasses and drink the shot. It’s best to do this quickly — the ginger will be spicy (but well worth it).

HOW TO PEEL AND MINCE FRESH GINGER | KITCHN

None Fresh ginger

Steps:

  • Peeling ginger with a spoon. Using the edge of the spoon with the convex of the bowl facing towards you, scrape away the ginger's papery skin using firm, downward strokes. You can anchor the root on a cutting board or hold it in your other hand, either will work. Scrape away as much as needed from the larger root (the rest of the root will give you a nice 'handle' to steady the process) or the whole piece if that's what's needed. The spoon will make it easier to work your way over and around all the little nubs. With a spoon, pretty much just the skin will be removed.
  • Peeling ginger with a vegetable peeler. In the same way you would use the spoon, peel the skin from the root. You will need a little more caution here as you can potentially cut yourself with the peeler and you will also notice that you are taking off some of the flesh. The peeler should be able to handle the bumps and nubs but again, use caution as this is the classic place to slip and cut yourself.
  • Mincing ginger by hand. Cut the ginger into coins. Using a large, sharp knife, cut the peeled ginger crosswise into coins. The thickness of the coins will determine how fine your mince will be: thinner coins will yield a finer mince. Cut the coins into matchsticks and then tiny cubes. Stack a few coins up. Do not make too high of a pile as the coins can easily slip when cutting and cause you to loose control of your knife. Cut the matchstick crosswise into a mince. Repeat with remaining coins.Chop again if needed. I sometimes take my knife and chop it while moving it through the whole pile to chop any bigger pieces that I may have missed the first time. This is sometimes called 'running your knife through.'
  • Mincing ginger on the microplane. The microplane is an excellent tool if you want superfine, even pureed, ginger. It will often create some juice, so be sure to use it over a plate or bowl. Simply rub your ginger on the microplane using a fair amount of pressure, being cautious as you get to the end of your piece as you can easily scrape your fingers on its razor sharp surface. You may have to scrape the ginger pulp off of the back of the microplane or give it a firm whack to dislodge the ginger. This method and its results are similar to what you would get if you used a traditional asian ginger grater.
