8oz piece of fresh gingerroot
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup filtered water
2 Tbsp raw cane sugar or maple syrup
Peel and thinly slice the gingerroot with either the vegetable peeler or a mandolin.
Using a prep glove or a small ziploc on your hand, generously rub the slices with the sea salt. Let sit for 2 hours at room temperature.
Meanwhile, combine the rice vinegar with the filtered water and cane sugar, stirring to dissolve.
Rinse the salted ginger thoroughly and squeeze out excess moisture and pat dry as much as possible.
Add the vinegar mixture and let ferment in an air-tight jar in cool, dark place for a week before storing in the fridge.
