- Kosher Parve
Eden Pickled Ginger is a versatile condiment made without colorings, chemicals, or preservatives.
Eden Pickled Ginger with Shiso Leaves is produced from a variety of ginger called 'zingiber officinale', that is cultivated for its rhizome or root. After the ginger is harvested the fresh roots are peeled, thinly sliced and pickled for a short time with a small amount of sea salt. The ginger slices are then pickled again in a mixture of water, umeboshi plum vinegar, rice malt, rice vinegar and shiso leaves. The variety of shiso used is called 'aka' (red) shiso, together with umeboshi vinegar it gives Eden Pickled Ginger its pink color. The mild sweet taste comes from naturally malted rice syrup.
Refrigerate when opened.
To use Eden Pickled Ginger with Shiso Leaves, first quickly rinse under cold water to remove the salty pickling brine. Eat as is or use in making brown rice sushi and rice balls.
