    I found bigs bags of ginger and garlic (great small chunk size and NO added extras)in the Asian frozen food section in my local Sainsburys. They cost less than a pound each, last ages and are ideal for popping in to stir fries, soups, sauces etc when you are preparing food in a hurry.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm posting a lot more now and find the tips on here so useful. Still not up to speed though. Should I just copy and paste it to a different location?

    You know I've been thinking, if you bought a load of garlic/ Ginger/chillies you could make and freeze your own using a mini chopper and a silicon ice cube tray, with perhaps a little water added.

    Chopped fresh herbs can be frozen the same way.

    They sell these in asda too.. they're brilliant! I use the garlic all the time. I bought two packets of the garlic about 5 months ago and I still have one pack left! I love my food garlicy so I use a whole cube for myself but my partner doesn't so I only use half a cube for him. They last ages, well worth the money!

    iv seen these in asda and thought about getting them but didn't think they'd be that great compared to fresh. Might get some next time im there as the tubes of fresh are pretty pricey!!!

    thanks for the tip! these would be so handy for me as fresh stuff always either goes off or I forget to get it in with my main shop and have to go back out again when deciding on making a curry! excellent! :eating:

    Waitrose does an excellent mix of finely chopped ginger, garlic, lemongrass and chilli, frozen in a sachet. You just spoon out as much or as little as you like. Lasts for ages and great if you are only cooking for one or two people.

    You're talking to someone else who's not up to speed (with anything techie)!! I should think the copy and paste thing would work when you've located that thread - but if not, hope someone else reading this will be able to help :)

    I freeze whole chillis (don't see any reason why you couldn't chop them first though). Take them out for a few minutes and they are ready to chop and use.
