PICKLED GINGER II
8 ounces (250 g) ginger root
3 fluid ounces (90 ml) rice vinegar
2 tablespoons mirin *
2 tablespoons sake **
5 teaspoons sugar

* Mirin is a very sweet rice wine used only for cooking.  You can substitute a teaspoon of sugar for a Tablespoon of mirin, or an equal amount of sake.

** sake is a rice wine that often accompanies sushi.  Dry sherry is a potential but inferior substitute.

Scrub the ginger under running water as you would a potato for baking.  Blanch in boiling water for one minute and drain.  Combine mirin, sake, and sugar in a small pan.  Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.  Remove from heat and let cool.

Place the ginger into a sterilized jar and pour the cooled vinegar over the ginger.  Cover and keep 3 to 4 days before using.  Will keep refrigerated for up to one month.

The pale pink color develops as it ages, however, you might want to add a small amount of red food coloring.
