How do you get ginger juice?

Slicko Joe | Aug 23, 2003 02:46 PM

I have a drink recipe calling for fresh juice from ginger root. How do I collect this stuff? I don't have a juicer.... I was thinking of chopping the ginger to a paste in a food processor, but mine is too big and doesn't really cut up much of the root. I guess I could spend about 2 hours mincing the hell out of the stuff, but my feeling is that as soon as the stuff gets to paste consistency the juice will start soaking into my cutting board... And even when/if I can get it into paste form, what about pressing out the juice? I thought I could spoon it into a garlic press and squeeze out the juice to separate it from the fibers, but maybe you have a more brilliant idea? My hope is to collect about 1 Cup of juice.
