Young ginger is the well-behaved and sweet child of that gnarly ginger root. You'll know it by its blushing pink tips and translucent skin. Peel it with your fingers, it's that easy. Baby ginger is juicy and mild compared to the fiery and fibrous ginger we're all used to. To make the common sushi ginger, "gari," only young ginger is used. This kid has a bright future ahead.
