Pickled Ginger (or Gari)

Pickled ginger is the ubiquitous condiment served in sushi restaurants. It is a wonderful palate-cleanser, making it possible to switch between various foods and be able to fully appreciate the flavors of each. We’ll make it for our bentō to allow you to enjoy the unique flavor of each dish; just nibble a slice of Gari before switching to a different item. While most have probably only tried pickled ginger from the store, it is easy to make at home — and wow! — the homemade variety packs a much stronger ginger punch. You will probably never buy this again.
