This is the pickled ginger recipe I used the other day (and that lots of people have asked about). I used organic turbinado sugar instead of white, and also added some slices of meyer lemons, but otherwise stuck with the recipe / quantities.
8 ounces fresh young ginger root, peeledvia Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari) Recipe - Allrecipes.com.
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
1 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup white sugar
