Pickled ginger is a classic condiment served with sushi. Thin slices of ginger are pickled in a vinegar and sugar solution until the flesh becomes tender. It is typically eaten between sushi dishes to cleanse the palette. You will usually find ginger in pink (usually because of added coloring) or a pale yellow. This is a great DIY project to do at home especially if you are making your own sushi.
