The easy way to grate ginger

Dear Lynne,
 
When I grate fresh ginger, half of it stays stuck to the grater. It's a pain. Any solutions?

Dear Luke,

If you press plastic wrap into the grater, then grate, you can lift it off with every bit of ginger intact and scrape the ginger off the wrap. Even easier and faster is to drop the ginger into a running food processor. There is little work with nearly the same result.
