This pickle is made with the freshest, recently harvested ginger. If you use old ginger, the pickle may taste spicier and more pungent. It does have a bite due to ginger, whether it's new or old.

1 knob of freshly harvested ginger, peeled & minced or grated
salt to taste
1 or 2 lemons, freshly squeezed

1. This pickle comes handy while making any chutney that requires ginger. Just take a spoonful or so from the jar and add to your blender. Just make sure that the spoon your are using to dip in the jar is clean and dry.
2. This pickle is also considered good for any indigestion problems.
3.If you grate the ginger, lots of juice comes out. Do add that juice to the pickle. If you are going to chop instead of grating, please make sure that the ginger is very finely minced.
