Preparation: 15 mins, Cooking time: 45 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 200g gluten fungus roll, sliced
° 400g old ginger, peeled, cut into chunk, bruised and pat dry
° 250ml black rice vinegar
° 500ml water
° 1-1½ tablespoons sesame oil
° 60g brown sugar

1. Brush some sesame oil on the ginger and bake in the oven or oven toaster for 10 minutes. Set aside.
