Radish pickles make any dish a little more tasty and fun and add a really nice crunch to everyday food. They are super quick and easy to make and dress up anything. Try radish pickles on a simple bowl of rice, a taco or a sandwich or top a salad with it.
I had watermelon radishes today, but you could use a daikon or a black winter radish if that is what you have. Look at the tap root on that big radish! You’ll have to scroll waaaaayyy down to see the whole thing. Way to grow Team Red Wagon Farm!
To make this you’ll need;
- A winter radish
- 1/4 cup vinegar-any type will do. I used cider vinegar, rice vinegar is good or white wine vinegar is good too.
- 2 tablespoons of a sweetener-agave, sugar, honey. I used maple syrup
- Black sesame seeds are optional, but fun with watermelon radishes, they look like watermelon seeds :-).
Slice the radish very thin. You can use a knife or a mandolin or even a spiralizer if you have one and toss in the vinegar and sweeter…that’s it, you made a radish pickle.
This will keep in a jar in the refrigerator for a week to 10 days. I hope you try this. It makes me happy to have a jar and try it on different things.
Have a great week. See you at pickup.
