Tutorial: Grating Fresh Ginger
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!

Hi Mel, what brand is this grater? I looked under your favorite things and couldn’t find it there.
I have this one now! https://www.amazon.com/Microplane-46020-Grater-Made-Cheese-Soft-Handle-Black/dp/B00151WA06/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=microplane&qid=1563592199&s=home-garden&sr=1-3
I feel like I’ve heard you say before that you don’t have to peel it before freezing, but I’m having a hard time finding that, so maybe I’m mistaken.
Yes, that’s correct – I don’t peel before freezing (or grating!).
My ginger always ends up going bad in the fridge, so this is really helpful!
