When a recipe is calling for fresh ginger how many drops of ginger essential oil should you use and when to add it?

Last night we had a ‘Crispy Pork Stir Fry” from Curtis Stones – Coles $10 meal, so yummy yet simple.

Such a great example to demonstrate how many drops of ginger you should add to your meal based on your personal taste.

Generally, 1 tsp of grated ginger = 1 drop of ginger EO

I made 2 batches of this recipe so I doubled the amount required:

This is how much I used:

6 tsp grated ginger = 3 drops of ginger EO – I would have added more however my kids are not great fans of ginger so I didn’t want to add too much, if it was just me and the hubby I would have added another drop.

Method: I just added drop by drop, and it is better to add gradually to ensure that you are not over powering the dish. Everyone’s tastes are different.

When do you add it:
It asked you to add the fresh ginger at the start and stir fry it with garlic and spring onion, instead when cooking with essential oils you need to add it at the end to get the most benefit out of every drop.

In this case, when you put the sauce together I added the ginger and then added the sauce at the last 3 minutes of the cooking.
