    You can use it in place of fresh ginger in recipes that don't mind a bit of extra sweet, like curries, fruit pickles, or fruit cobblers.

    Candied ginger in gingersnap cookies elevates them to the next level.

    Survey: For people who have a knife block (the thing you put steak knives and various food prep knives in in case someone has a different word for it that I don't know) which direction do you put your steak knives?

    In that case, which of the two is the Correct way for a vertical slot one?

    First picture. It's more intuitive to pull the knife out that way, rather than having to rotate your hand and pulling the blade out facing yourself. Second picture isn't as safe.

    You know, that's fair enough. I have no real opinion on vertical vs horizontal but that's totally fair.

    Literally every single time I need to grab a knife out like that my brain immediately goes to "I'm Eliot about to fight some guy who had better fucking not get his blood on my pierogies". Like. We aren't assassins or anything here, why are the knives put so wrongly every time???

    I'm late to the corn discourse but I def fall on the MAIZE IS GOD, MAIZE IS LIFE ALL HAIL side of the argument

    Also I just wanna say how much my life fuckin changed when I learned how to grill and bake corn cobs rather than boiling them for a zillion hours like my stupid-ass ancestors always did.

    I cannot fathom why anyone would go with option 2 for their knife-storing needs.

    I showed a friend the pictures and he swears that the second way is the right one because “otherwise the wood wears down the blade”

    Has your friend perhaps never heard of a knife sharpener?

    Well I mean far better not to fuck up your edge in the first place than to have to keep sharpening it, but honestly I can't see a whole lot of wear happening.
