I just cut a chunk off a ginger root, but it's been so long since I've bought any I can't remember if I need to refridgerate it now since it's been cut.

Doesn't matter. The cut edge should just dry up, and you'll trim it off before use.

I store the gingeroot in my freezer in a freezer bag. I just peel and grate as needed and return to freezer.

I like this idea. Thanks, tibbyl! I keep mine in the refrigerator, but apparently don't use it fast enough as it has gotten moldy. I think I'll try this!:)

Treat it like a carrot or something: wrap and keep cool.

This is what I do too.
