Urban Platter Pickled Sushi Ginger, 200g / 7oz [Gari, Ginger Pickle, Premium Quality]
Pickled Ginger is made from sweet, thinly sliced young ginger that has been marinated in a solution of sugar and vinegar.
Young ginger is generally preferred for gari because of its tender flesh and natural sweetness.
Gari is often served and eaten after sushi, and is sometimes called sushi ginger.
In Japanese cuisine, it is considered to be essential in the presentation of sushi. It is used to cleanse the palate between eating different pieces of sushi, or, alternatively, it may be eaten before or after the meal.
When traditionally prepared, gari typically has a pale yellow to slightly pink hue from the pickling process. Only very young ginger will develop the slight pink tint naturally
