Grated candied ginger

Hello does anyone have a suggestion on how to grate or finely mince candied ginger? It is so sticky and hard to work with!

You could use a microplane grater (coarse) or just finely chop it. It's not an easy thing to grate because it's pliable and sticky.

I tend to just mash it with the back of a spoon.

Freeze it first?

I just use a knife, and yes, it can be sticky, but it's never been a problem for me to mince or small dice. After you make the first cuts, one can toss some more sugar on those edges, makes it less sticky.
