Ground ginger - at home
Not sure why it took me this long to realize I can make dried, ground ginger at home. It's a totally different spice than the one bought at the store. As well as packing a good amount of heat and flavour, the home ground ginger also has a lovely citrus overtone in the aroma.

The only thing I did differently is use a home dehydrator, set on low, for about 7 hours to dry the thinly sliced ginger.
Awesome idea. I usually buy powdered ginger from the Indian store. They also sell bags of whole dried ginger for home powdering. But why not go the extra mile and dry fresh ginger if you have the capability of doing so at home?
Does it taste much sharper than the bagged powder?
