1 large gobo piece
3 dried chilies (cut in half lengthwise)
6 tbsp. sugar
6 tbsp. white wine
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. peppercorns
6 tbsp. vinegar (plus more for soaking and boiling)
wash the gobo well, and cut into short lengths about 2-3" pieces. then cut into quarters lengthwise, and soak in vinegar water.
pour a bit of vinegar into a pot of boiling water and boil the gobo until al dente. remove and immediately place into an ice bath.
in a separate pot boil the sugar, wine, salt, peppercorns, and chilies then cool. add in the 6 tbsp. of vinegar and the gobo and let stand for 1 hour. then add into a container and place in the fridge.
