What is sushi Gari?


Sliced ginger

Gari are thin slices of pickled ginger. Commercial Gari is usually colored pink, and sometimes can be obtained in its original color - yellow, as the inside of ginger is.

Gari is served with every meal of sushi. It is usually consumed between different sushi dishes, or sushi piece in order to cleanse the palate, and not as an integral part of the sushi piece.

It is a common product to find in asian markets in various sizes. Not much of it needed for one meal of sushi, so the smaller packs/jars are usually the ones taken. Also, Gari can be prepared at home. Following this introduction, is a video guide on how to make gari at home, and suggestions where to buy Gari online.

Quoting Lucia Maria:
What did he say after telling us to boil the ginger for a few minutes with salted water? Are we supposed add anything else to it when leaving it for a few days?? I played the video a few times, and for the life of me, I can't understand that part of what he's saying.


I think they use the Rice Wine Vinegar

Oh dear - when I tried plain ginger, it wasn't for me. Is sushi ginger (gari) different from the ginger in the States?
