Pickled young ginger is easy to make and pleasing to look at. This pickled ginger is the same ginger that you see accompanying sushi. In Thai cuisine, pickled ginger accompanies many dishes from appetizer to main course.
Young ladies at the royal court showed their prowess by carving the ginger prior to pickling. They would make beautiful animals, flowers, leaves, bouquet and boats. I'm just happy to cut it super thin without cutting myself.
