Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Asian Pickles: Japan is quickly earning its place in my collection of cookbooks. I've only tested one recipe, but it's that one recipe that drew me to the book - Pickled Ginger. I love pickled ginger. For those who are unfamiliar with it, it's the sweet, tangy slices of ginger served with sushi as a palate cleanser. I adore it and making it at home simply makes sense.

This is the recipe I focused on for my first test, but there are others I want to attempt.  Pickled Asian Pear with Lemon will be the next one.There are recipes for pickled plums, a variety of cucumber recipes, seaweed, eggplant, and even a tempting wasabi carrots.

At just under $3, I can't think of a reason to bypass Asian Pickles: Japan. It's a great collection of recipes that go very well with Japanese cuisine.
