With its fresh, zesty taste Clearspring Sushi Ginger stimulates the appetite and invigorates the taste buds. It can be eaten straight from the pack, and is so named because it is almost always served with sushi or sashimi, to cleanse the palate between mouthfuls.
Clearspring Sushi Ginger combines well with both Western and Asian dishes. Cut into slivers and add to salads, fried rice or noodles, and stir-fries or use straight from the pack as the perfect complement for tempura and other fried foods, fish and, of course, sushi!
It has a superb flavour and has been prepared from young, tender ginger roots, thinly sliced, briefly salt-pressed then pickled in high quality rice vinegar. It is unsweetened and its colour comes naturally from red shiso herb. In contrast, the ginger pickles found in sushi bars and take-away sushi packs invariably contain sugar, dyes and cheap vinegar.

Disappointing and overpriced. Very small sachets and quite sour. I had to add sugar
An excellent sushi ginger.
A good product
Unlike the pickled ginger you get out in restaurants when ordering sushi. You can tell this product is all natural. It doesn't have the sickly fake sweetness found in some gingers and no preservatives! I would recommend this product.
fresh and zingy, as it should be.
