Homemade Gari (Pickled Ginger)

It’s been quite some time since I’ve gotten to update my recipe list but here’s a great one that I have been making non-stop the last year. This is the pickled Ginger that you usually get with your sushi. Sometimes it has been dyed pink, other times it is the natural Ginger color. The small jars of this at the store run from 6-10$ for a little 6 oz jar. You can use this recipe to make a lot up when the price of Ginger is low and save in the fridge for months.

With summer coming up, it’s time to start working on lighter options. Seafood salad with crab and shrimp is an easy fix up that will feed you for a few days. I use canned crab meat and chilis because it’s faster an easier, but you can substitute out with fresh. With this, you can make some great cold sandwiches and lettuce wraps.

My Grandfather’s Ham Barbecue Recipe

This is my grandfathers recipe for Chipped Ham Barbecue.

You’ll want to get regular or smoked ham, not the maple or flavored kind as it will throw off the taste. Finding chipped ham is easy, you can usually just ask the butcher or deli for them slice it on the smallest setting they have.
