Hawaiian style chicken.
A recipe that just screams "Let's eat outdoors."
Perfect for late April.
Ginger root can be found fresh in the produce section.
Slice and use, just like fresh garlic.
But, if you want to use up some of your ground ginger,
One teaspoon ground ginger equals two tablespoons chopped fresh ginger.
Some substitution math:
Four tablespoons equal one quarter cup.
So, according to that...
Two teaspoons ground ginger equal one quarter cup chopped fresh ginger.
More or less.
In a pinch.
