Homemade Pickled Ginger Mince Preserve, Cook with it, Bake with it, Or Just to Make Some Ginger Tea.
I've never done this before, but I'm going to try it anyway. After all, what have I got to lose?
A handful of fresh old ginger root
A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
100ml filtered water
50g rock sugar
I've adopted the simplest method I think would work:
- What I usually see being sold in a jar is pickled chopped ginger, but I prefer it in minced form so I've ground it with a pestle and mortar.
- Pour all the minced ginger into a sterilised jar (rinsed with boiling water then drained).
- Boil the water, apple cider vinegar and rock sugar in a small pan or milk pan, then simmer on very low heat till it becomes syrupy.
- Leave to cool then pour it into the jar of minced ginger till the liquid covers all the ginger.
