pink & happy : young & spicy
No, not what you might be thinking...but I scored a bunch of young ginger at Uwajimaya. Now I can attempt homemade pickled sushi ginger, with the last bits of the purple shiso which is still hanging on in my herb planter. I found a recipie which looks fairly simple, and so in addition to spending the weekend making various things for the studio sale, I'll be experimenting with steeping shiso leaves in rice vinegar. The pink color traditionally comes from shiso, rather than Red dye #??
