    Most major grocery stores carry it in the Asian food section. Pickled Ginger.

    Pickled ginger also know as Gari.

    It's easy to make.


    2 lb fresh young ginger (shin shoga)

    2 tsps salt

    3 cups rice vinegar

    2 cups sugar


    Wash young ginger root and rub off skin. Slice the ginger thinly and salt them. Leave salted ginger slices in a bowl for about one hour. Dry the ginger slices with paper towels and put them in a sterilized, heat-resistant container/jar. Mix rice vinegar and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil. Pour the hot mixture of vinegar and sugar over the ginger slices. Cool them. Pickled ginger changes its color to light pink. (If you are using old ginger, it might not turn pink naturally.) Cover the jar and store it in the refrigerator.

    I love that stuff. FYI most of the wasabi you get here in the us is not true wasabi. It's horse radish with green dye.

    Check near the Japanese ingredients in the supermarket. Pickled ginger comes in jars.

    Pink ginger is colored pink. It will not turn pink 'naturally'. The recipe is good though, in case you can't find it.
