Pickled Daikon Radishes

Mmmm…these were soooo tasty.

Now that I am comfortable canning things, I find I like to can random items. Limes, radishes, eggs, watermelon rinds, and artichokes have all somehow found their way into a briny bath.

FYI–I am totally ready for when the zombies come. I mean, eating wise.

I very much doubt I will be able to fend off the zombies with a jar of pickled eggs.

ManBeef: yes. Zombies: not intimidated.

Since I like growing these radishes myself, I am doubly-prepared.

How to make Basic Pickling Brine:

  1. 6 cups water
  2. 3 cups apple cider vinegar
  3. 1/2 cup pickling salt
  4. spices!

Boil ingredients for about 10 minutes. Can items as directed by USDA canning guide.

Since the radishes themselves are slightly spicy/peppery, I used Thai Dragon chilis in the brine. The apple cider vinegar was slightly sweet, and the peppers nice and spicy.

I am not sure what else I tossed in the brine; probably garlic, pepper, cumin, and bay leaves. As long as I use spices I like, whatever I am pickling turns out pretty tasty. It is hard to mess up. So be creative when making your brine!

    Yum! I love daikon – a staple in Japanese cooking! It’s so good shredded on top of a nice Miso Ramen Soup!

    Cheers!

    These look really good, however the newest standard for brines is a 50/50 ratio of vinegar to water for canning.
    This would be fine for a refrigerator pickle though.
    I never would have thought about pickling radishes. Sounds delicious!

    I love to eat them raw. Hadn’t thought to pickle them though. Can only get them from Coles and limited season. Must see if I can track down some seeds.
