Wow! This ginger has a kick! I'm surprised that the ginger tastes this pickled in such a short amount of time. I think that I will enjoy them after they sit for a couple of hours. I like ginger, but I'm a wimp when it's this strong! ;) I made this exactly as listed and will make it again! Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks Scarlett516! :)

This was a real lifesaver. I used this to garnish Recipe #305429. It really added the finishing touch. Made for *ZWT6* and a fellow No Nonsense Nibbler.
