Ginger root is used as a spice and also as a medicine. It can be used fresh, dried and powdered, or mixed in your favorite juice combination.
Peel ginger root for best results. A little ginger goes a long way. You only need a little bit to add with other juices.
Juice (Grid #1 or Juicing Grid)
Triturate and press in flat cloths.
Triturate ginger root, sloping the ginger in the direction of the rotation of the cutter blade (to your right). Hold the ginger until it reaches the top of the feed pan. If the cutter pulls the ginger from your hand it might cause throwback. Leave the housing partially filled with ginger pulp at all times while processing to prevent throwback. This is best accomplished by not pushing the pusher down more than one half the length of the housing until you have finished juicing. Then push it all the way down. When finished, leave the pusher in the tube until you have turned off the Norwalk.
Fill the center portion of a flat cloth with one cup of pulp. Fold into thirds and always press with two cloths.
