This is a staple in my pantry , I make it when ginger is young and fresh and I frequently make more than I need because I use the "juice" to make a delicious asian style vinaigrette.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover ginger with boiling water. Let stand 2 minutes, then drain in colander. Put the ginger in a large, clean glass jar or plastic container.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a non-reactive pot. Stir over medium heat until the sugar and salt dissolve. Pour over ginger.
  3. Let cool completely, then cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 24 hours before using. Enjoy!
  4. The thin slices of ginger make a good addition to plates of grilled meat, fish, or poultry. Minced or julienned, they are good added to sauces and marinades. The juice can be used in hot and cold sauces, spring roll dips, and salad dressings. You will get 3/4 cup ginger and about 2 cups juice.
