I created this recipe because I could not find colour, preservative free pickled ginger in the supermarket or deli.  Most store bought pickled ginger is 'pink' - to get this colour, unfortunately additives are added.  If you can spend the time to quickly peel some ginger and follow this recipe, the flavour is far superior to the store bought version and you can use this ginger to flavour many of your other dishes!

    WOW! Soooo good!

    I accidentally forgot to put my TM5 blade on reverse, so the ginger is a bit smaller than it was, but the taste was lovely!

    I didn't have enough rice wine, but I filled it with Mirin Seasoning.

    It was really nice with the Asian Sticky Chicken recipe on this site.
