Make your own homemade pickled ginger to serve with sushi or your favourite Japanese dishes. Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavours.
The recipe does not say whether to wash off the salt. I did not, and the ginger turned out too salty. - 08 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It is nice to know how to make our own pickled ginger. I sliced the ginger thin when it was raw, then added it to the boiling vinegar mixture and simmered it for about 5 minutes. I then put it in to the jar, cooled it, and stored in the refridgerator. We used it the same day with our sushi...perfect! - 09 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good. Surprised at how easy this was, just hard to wait! To peel ginger, just use a regular spoon and the skin comes right off. - 18 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
