Sushi Ingredients

 

Ginger

Pickled Sliced Ginger "Gari" is generally served with Sushi to cleanse the palate between different types of sushi. Ginger together with wasabi are the two "condiments" which are most commonly served with Sushi.

Packaged Sushi Ginger (gari)

Pre-packaged ginger generally contains salt, saccharin/sugar, and MSG, in addition to the ginger. My advice is to buy the type which is in a sealed sachet, and sold from the refrigerator. You can get the type which comes in a jar, ..... don't buy it, its awful!

If you are really stuck, and can only get the jar type, drain it, rinse it, and soak it in some Sushi-Su for an hour before serving.
