Pickled ginger is delicious not just with sushi, you can also add it to stir-fries, enjoy as a side to a good curry, or thinly slice and stir through scrambled eggs.

If you can source young ginger, use that as the pink tips will give your picked ginger a beautiful, natural pink hue. Otherwise, mature ginger works well, but try and use it as fresh as you can.

Mature ginger will have a stringer, more peppery flavour so if you want something more subtle, either blanch it before bottling, or add a little extra sweetener to balance it out.

Serve just like regular pickled ginger with Keto Sushi, Salmon Poke Bowls, Tuna Poke Stuffed Avocados and add to any low-carb stir-fries!
