From: "Colonel I.F.K. Philpott" <colonel@...> Date: Fri, 19 Jul 1996 10:14:55 -0700 This is a simple pickling recipe for ginger. The resultant pickle can be eaten with meats and poultry. It is also eaten on its own as a snack, and even on ice cream (!)


Peel the ginger and then slice it thinly, cutting larger slices into smallish pieces. Rub with the baking soda and allow to stand whilst preparing the pickling liquor.

Boil the water, and stir in and fully dissolve the sugar. Next dissolve in the salt, allow to cool, and add the vinegar, stirring thoroughly.

Place the ginger in a one quart preserving jar, and fill with the liquor, seal and keep in a cool place for at least two weeks before using.
