READY IN: 168hrs 10mins
Recipe by Steve P.

Pickled ginger is served with sushi. Try to eat pieces of pickled ginger between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your mouth and enhance the flavors.

This turned out to be easier than I thought and believe this is going to sit pretty with all my dinner meals as long as the bottle lasts. Too good as it compliments a typical Indian meal so well. :-))) Mini
