Yes, it does soak up some of it. But if anything, it adds to the flavor (you cut the chunks large enough that they aren't like sushi ginger, pickled through). The liquid you immerse them in is delicious as well. When you get down to that last chunk, you take the sherry in the jar and toss it into some soy based marinade and have a barbecue!

That would only be true if you liked Sherry. I can't stand the stuff. I think I'll just freeze it instead.
