Recipe by Rita~
recipe by Chefs Anne and David Gingrass, tweaked by me. I know it's so easy to go and buy pickled ginger. But when I have a client that gives me so much fresh I just had to find a recipe! You can use all rice wine vinegar. Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects, an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.
- 1 lb fresh young ginger, peeled, sliced very thin
- 2 cups rice wine vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup champagne vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 8 -10 red shiso leaves (i used the Shiso Beefsteak) (optional)
