Pear Ginger Vinegar Infusion Recipe

Sweet pears and spicy ginger meld together wonderfully yet they are a pairing that is often overlooked. I like to infuse them into a flavorful vinegar that is fantastic on sushi or sprinkled over steamed fish. You can play with the balance of the infusion by changing the ratio of pear to ginger to push it sweeter or spicier as you like. The pickled pears are also a great addition to a chutney or as a garnish.
