Make your own Ginger Juice. Use a garlic press to squeeze a 1 x 2 inch piece of ginger root. This simple hack yields about 1 tablespoon of ginger essence. With just a few squeezes, you unlock a tablespoon of liquid gold - fresh, Ginger Juice.

Frog legs? Hmm, not sure about that, but since I'm a recipe searcher, I'm curious.

I might give it a try for an adventurous supper.

I've had frog legs at a restaurant before and loved them. Excited to try making them at home. I appreciate the tip about chilling the frog legs with lemon juice and ice.
