slices of slightly macerated fresh ginger root
Place ginger root, garlic and Thai chilis in the bottom of a clean glass container that has a tight lid (i.e. an old mayonnaise jar). Top with vinegar and Hawaiian salt. Pour in the hot water and shake vigorously. Let sit in the back of your fridge for a day or two to develop the flavors. Keeps well for about a month in the fridge. Use liberally!
