INGREDIENTS: The ginger should be fresh, plump and
shiny looking—not withered. Use a very sharp mandoline slicer or razor-sharp knife to slice the ginger paper thin.

gingerroot 3 c. peeled, thinly sliced
sea salt 1 TBS. mixed in 2 cups water
dry sherry 1 c.  
spring water 1 c.  
maple syrup 6 TBS  

FERMENT: Use unpasteurized soy sauce and brown rice vinegar for best quality. Find at natural food stores.

brown rice vinegar 1 c.
soy sauce 1/2 c.

1 Peel the ginger, slice as thinly as you can. Soak the ginger in the 2 cups of brine for an hour. Rinse.
2 Bring sherry, water, and maple syrup to a simmer; add ginger, barely simmer for 35 minutes covered. Then cool.
3 Pour vinegar and soy sauce into the canister.
4 Pack the ginger and liquid into the canister, making sure brine is above the ginger slices.
