Preserved Pickled Ginger Recipe

Hello all,

I have been looking around for a pickled ginger recipe.

Recipes for a quick pickle that isn't canned (but will last in the fridge) are easily accessible.

I am wondering if anyone has a recipe for preserving pickled ginger?

      yeah, I did the same thing and found the same recipe...this isn't is pickled but is only a fridge-short-term pickle...not actually canned.

        I am not sure what you mean by preserved then. You asked for a quick pickle that wasn't canned but would last in the fridge. These last very long like this.

    2. I have found some non-canned recipes already...sorry, this is an awkward sentence. I meant these types of recipes are readily available and I have already found them.

      What I can't find is a canned recipe for pickled ginger. This is what I am looking for.

            To get the red/pink color often found, you can add a small piece of red beet or add some red food coloring to the boil mix.

        2. I found a recipe that may be what you're looking for in one of the Time/Life Books Good Cook Series, "Preserving". It is from Cecily Brownstone, I found it on this link:

          The process of preserving ginger is quite involved!
