When looking for ginger, look for firm roots heavy for their size, with a taut and slightly shiny skin, without looking shriveled or dry or with any soft spots. Young ginger may have a slight pink tinge to the skin and is often thinner and paler than mature versions.
When it comes to storing it, you can do so in the fridge or freezer. To store in the refrigerator, keep it in the crisper drawer in an airtight bag (excess air removed) for between 2-3 days – this is best when you use ginger multiple times a week. However, if you only use this root 1-2 times a week, it is recommend storing it in the freezer instead, for up to 6 months!
