Cooking Time: < 15mins
Serves:3 to 4
Total time: 15mins - 30mins
Course: Side
Cook Method: Pickle
Cuisine: Japanese









Ingredients:

100-150g young ginger
½ tsp salt (or to taste)

Sweet Vinegar (Amazu)

100ml rice vinegar
4 tbsp sugar
½ tsp salt (or to taste)

1 sterilised jar




Steps:

1. Scrape off the skin and brown spots on the ginger. Slice thinly using a peeler or a mandolin. Sprinkle ½ tsp salt (or to taste) over ginger slices, mix well and set aside for 10 mins.
2. In a pot, bring water to the boil and add ginger to the pot to cook for 1-3 mins. If you prefer the ginger to be spicier, remove from pot after 1 min.
3. Drain and sieve ginger slices. Lay them out in a single layer to cool. Squeeze excess water using your hands and transfer them into a sterilised jar.

Pour vinegar mixture into the jar, seal, let it cool and refrigerate. When it’s slightly cool, pour the vinegar mixture into the jar with sliced ginger.
