Hi, Susan. Fresh and dried ginger are nothing alike, so you wouldn't get the same flavor. I'd get fresh. It will keep forever in a jar of dry sherry in the fridge.

You could use the ground stuff but go easy.

Anything is good with a nice glass of wine.

ginger, mussels, recipe

Mussels with Ginger and Shallots Simple recipe for mussels. 1 1/2 pounds Fresh Mussels 1 Tablespoon butter 4 diced shallots, julienned fresh ginger, I used about a 2 inch piece but I love ginger with seafood. 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 cups of water handfull of chopped flat leaf parsley. Melt butter in pan, add ginger, shallots and salt. When the shallots have softened add water and bring to a boil. When the water has started to boil add parsley and mussels. Cook covered until done. For done I only cook them until just after they have opened. It is best to use a see thru lid. You could use wine or a mix of wine and water but I would boil it to cook out [B][U]most[/U][/B] of the alcohol.
