I have root ginger which sometimes dries out and goes a bit wrinkly. Currently I just store it on the side in a bowl. Is there a better way to store it to maximise its shelf life?
Fine Cooking did an experiment and found unpeeled in zip-top bag, in the crisper of your fridge lasted two months. They had longer time with peeled, in vodka, in the fridge, but that's more effort in my opinion.
Still Tasty seems to agree on a bag in the fridge, but claim only 2-3 weeks for it.
