Japanese Pickle

I was out in the backyard when my next door neighbour offered to give me some radishes. Okay, this is interesting! I don't eat a lot of fresh fruits or salad...my body will simply go into shock...eject eject... LOL ;)

Then I remembered, "Good God!I loved pickles, hey, why don't I pickle them? What an excellent idea, neh!"

I love going to Zen for the Japanese food but I also like the little appetisers they put on your table before your meals arrive. Like the hot wasabi peas and pickled vegetables...so yummy and refrehsing. I have all the ingredients at home..coz I make sushi all the time.. the only thing missing is sake, never mind, I will use white vinegar instead..or maybe some miso paste.....


200grams of sliced radishes
100ml sake
50ml Mirin
500ml water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

Peel and slice the radishes into thin slices.

Place the vinegar, mirin, water, sugar and salt into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring to ensure the solids are dissolved.

Add the sliced radishes, making sure they are all under the liquid and let it come back to a simmer.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the radish to infuse for half an hour. Let it cool then store in a sealed glass jar and place in the fridge to chill.
