Pickled Red Ginger (Benishouga)


Pickled Red Ginger (Benishouga) is ginger pickled in plum vinegar.   It has a sour flavor with a little ginger spiciness.  It is often used with Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki, and Yakisoba.

It’s tasty and also a nice garnish for its color.  (This is not sushi ginger.)

It is available at Japanese markets.
