How to Make Nice Pink Sweet and Sour Pickled Ginger

There are some tips to make pink sweet and sour pickled ginger.

Ingredients

Ginger
200 g
Salt
1 teaspoon
Boiling water
1 kettle's worth
Vinegar
1 cup - 200 ml
Sugar
70 g

Steps

1. Peel the ginger, cut into thin slices, and sprinkle with salt in a sieve.
2. Make the sweet and sour marinade using the vinegar and sugar. (Please adjust the amount of sugar to your liking.)
3. Pour boiling water over the ginger, drain the excess water by shaking the sieve. Marinate in the vinegar and sugar mixture while the ginger is still hot. Alternatively you can put the ginger in boiling water in a pot, and transfer into the sieve to drain.
4. Leave it for a while, and it will turn nice pink. You can eat it, but it will absorb more flavour after half a day or so. You can store it for a month in the fridge.
