I cut this recipe way back to just have a bit of pickled ginger on hand for my sushi cravings - no problem- Great flavor. The only thing I would do differently is shave the ginger very fine about 1/16"instead of the 1/8". I had some today for lunch with "bought" Sushi Thanbks Dibs it was fun making my own
The ginger was so sharp! I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but the slices should be very very thin. I sliced them about as thick as what you'd get from commercial pickled ginger and it's just too strong and raw tasting to eat. Does it need to sit for a designated amount of time? I canned these maybe 2-3 weeks ago.
