Thought this was a very good deal. £1 for 125g of pre-packaged ginger from Asda, probably around 60-70p loose...

Oh OK, it has been 2.11(and less on occasion) for the last year .

Must have gone up in the last few days. Sainsbury was selling at 2.50 and tesco pretty much price matched asda previously.

I guess you keep this in the fridge once you've started using it? If so, how long does it stay fresh and how can you make it stay fresh longer?

I peel it when I buy it, put it in a freezer bag with an airtight clip, bung it in the freezer and then whenever I need some just get it out and grate it or slice it thinly. Depending on your grater/knife you might want to leave the frozen ginger on the side for a few minutes...

Just chuck it back in the freezer when you're done. Lasts ages.

Store it as a paste in veg oil in fridge shorter time or you can keep it in freezer longer time -make sure there is a layer of oil above the paste. But it does keep for a reasonable time up to 2 months in the fridge as is. Or you can freeze it in usable chunks / whole / paste between 3 to 6 months as earlier post.

Price has jumped up on ginger suddenly! 29p for 125g is excellent, better than paying 3.20 kg in Sainsburys. Thanks op.
