Absolutely the best option. I buy nice smooth fresh piece and put in ziplock. When I need ginger I grate it frozen. If I need chopped I use the cleaver and whack off a piece. It defrosts fast.

I agree with PAMELA D; do it all the time.

So funny, I came up with almost the same question last night. I have some pickled ginger left from a sushi plate I got. Can I or should I freeze that?

Gosh I don't know about that one. But I did get my root today and I will scrape it and freeze it.
