What to do with a lot of fresh ginger?

fbf242 | May 18, 2008 09:05 AM

When I went to buy ingredients for a curry a couple of weeks ago, my grocer only had fresh ginger in huge (1 lb maybe?) packages. I have since made various kinds of curry several times, but more than half of the package is still remaining. I have been browsing through recipes, and found some that I would like to try, but they all call for a pretty small amount of ginger, and I fear that I won't use all of the ginger up before it starts to go bad. Does anyone have a recipe that uses a large volume of fresh ginger? I was thinking about trying to make candied ginger. I found some very different instructions online - does anyone have a method they could share?
