After peeling and chopping the ginger, I store it in freezer safe ziploc bags.

When I’m ready to grate it, I pull a knob of ginger out of the bag and get out my handy dandy rasp grater. Oh, how I love my rasp grater.

The next part is simple – place the ginger on the rasp grater and start grating away!

Soon you’ll have a perfectly lovely, fine pile of grated ginger, ready to be measured and used in your recipe.

Be sure to tap the rasp grater as you go along, since you can see that the sneaky ginger likes to get trapped on the underside of the grater and we don’t want none of that!
