About This Recipe
This is an instant condiment where red radish is sliced thinly and pickled with ingredients such as red wine vinegar, salt, honey, red chili flakes, whole peppercorns and garlic.
This radish tends a lovely flavor to your recipes without overpowering other flavors like, say, raw onions do. Also, this is a great way to make use of your leftover Radish.
Here, I have used red wine vinegar, but you can also add white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar as a substitute. These two also works well to pickle these lovely sliced red radishes.
You can also pickle Red Onions or Carrots, just like I did here with Red Radish. They also tastes great and you can use them just like the radish.
If you want your vegetables to soak up the flavors of vinegar and spices well, then slice the vegetables thinner. You can slice them into thin slices using a mandolin.
Japanese Pickled Radishes, which is also called as Spicy Japanese Daikon Pickles uses white radishes and is pickled a bit differently.
To pickle the same, they use ingredients such as sugar, rice vinegar, salt, kombu dashi powder, sake (rice based alcohol) and dried red chilli pepper.
You can add pickled red radish in everything from your Tacos, Burgers, Salads, Toast, Sandwiches, Vegetable Stir Fries and more.
This quick and super easy pickle will pack a spicier, vinegary punch to your preparation. You can also use this in cold summer soups or as veggie crackers. It is also used as a condiment in popular Korean, Chinese and Japanese recipes.
How long can you keep it?
Once you make this instant pickled radish, you can use it immediately or refrigerate it an air tight container in the fridge for up to a month. Just bring them out and use it whenever you need to add them in recipes.
They are also good to use it after a month, but it will lose some crunch and flavor will not be as good the fresh ones.
What radish can be used for pickling?
Here, I have used Red Radish for pickling, but you can also use White Radishes if you can’t find the red ones in the market.
Can you freeze it?
Yes, you can definitely freeze Radish Pickle.
Add it in an air tight container, cover it with lids and freeze until completely solid. They will stay good for about a year. Thaw the pickles in the fridge for 24 hours before serving.
It stays good for a year, but the texture will change as it gets old.
