Sweetened vinegar ginger 

  

I wonder how ginger is used for cooking in other countries. 

I made sweetened vinegar ginger using organic new ginger from Shimanto in Kochi prefecture.

Shimanto is number 1 for ginger production in Japan.

You can find this next to sushi at sushi restaurants, where it is called “Gari”.

Vinegar and something sweet like sugar are boiled together, and also sliced thin ginger is boiled in water for about 3 minutes, then all are put together into a jar.

It turns a pretty pink color.

That is nice to see.
