If you remember from my Jaipur post I had the pleasure of meeting Bipin of Samajhna(Samajhna means understanding), he graciously shared his mother's pickled ginger recipe with me. It's a 4 ingredient deal with some time spent out in the sun. I'm hoping that I'm not too late with this post seeing as winter is almost upon us as it needs about 4-5 hours in the sun for the metamorphosis to take place, a pale shade of pink is what we're after. No problems for my Southern friends.
I get all sentimental when I chance upon recipes that have been handed down through the generations. It reminds me of my late grandmother and the loss of some great recipes. I'm always telling people to transcribe family recipes, it's heirloom material. Someone else, if it's not you, will appreciate the effort.
