Recipe For Pickled Ginger

Until I developed an allergy to an unknown substance I never considered how many items are made in a factory that uses nuts. And if you are a label reader like I am, then you will know how many savoury products contain sugar. As a person intolerant to sucrose I have learnt to make a lot of condiments from scratch. Recently we were given a large yellow fin tuna and Dave and ate the trimmings sashimi style. I made fresh wasabi but I didn’t have any pickled ginger to go with it. The next day I took some of the fresh ginger I always have in my pantry and made some. It is easy to make and stores well and I will make sure to always have a jar of pickled ginger in my fridge from now on.

do you eat pickled ginger?

  2. Simple and delicious Tandy. I have bought the prepared pickled ginger before now but didn’t enjoy the fake colour – pink-red. This sounds much more up my street. Thank you I’ll be giving this a try

  6. Ginger is one of those flavours I just can’t seem to get used to on its own, pickled or in a stir fry unless its in a tea or german sweet cookie! I think I’d stomach that icecream just fine though 🙂

    1. If you get fresh root ginger when it is in season then it will be way cheaper to make your own 🙂

  13. I have been making pickled ginger for my Mum since she has been on chemo. She loves it and has some every day. She has been very fortunate in that she has no side effects from the chemo, but she doesn’t let that stop her from eating the ginger! xx
