Simple Pickled Radish

G

rowing up I saw my grandma pickling a lot of stuff – gherkins, mushrooms, tomatoes. onions, garlic.

So I had quite a good idea on how to make the standard pickling liquid or for instance, importance of sterilising the jars.

I never, however, saw her making pickled radish.

Thus using my knowledge and love to experiment – here is my Simple Pickled Radish!

Tad-da!

I usually use the regular radish,

however you can be adventures and go for Daikon (Asian radish also often used in kimchi) or Watermelon Radish.

There are plenty of other types you can use.

You can even mix the radish and beetroot for this pickle.

    Really like the recipe – want to try with beetroot thou. Is it gonna work?

    • Hello Tara!

      It will work just fine with beetroot. just replace the amount of radish with thinly sliced beetroot for quicker result.
