If you read the title and thought, I don’t like radishes, this post isn’t for me, please read on! Pickling vegetables completely changes their flavour. In radishes case, it takes away to bitterness and adds a lovely salty, slightly sweet and tangy twist that I think you’ll love! This recipe for Perfect Pickled Radishes can also be used on so many different veggies as well, like cucumbers, red cabbage and even red onion!

INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED FOR PICKLED RADISHES

You’ll need very little time and ingredients to make this incredible add on!

  1. Fresh Radishes

I like to buy the radishes that still have the green tops. I find them much fresher than the ones you buy in a package! I like to slice them thinly with my mandolin, but feel free to cut them however you like. Just keep in mind that the larger the pieces, the longer it will take the radishes to take on the flavour of the brine.

  1. Mason Jar with lid

I LOVE these new lids from Ball! They are SO easy to use and clean! I have started to switch all of my mason jars over to these lids. BONUS, they are air tight, leak proof, dishwasher & freezer safe! They make both wide mouth & regular mouth sizes.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

I love Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). The potential health benefits of apple cider vinegar have been extensively researched and are remarkable! ACV has an anti-inflammatory properties, can help prevent obesity & obesity related heart problems (1), can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels for diabetes prevention & treatment (2), and can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels (1) and much more (3)!

  1. White Vinegar

I find the combination of regular white vinegar is lovely with the ACV. However, feel free to use any combination of either rice wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar).

  1. Cane Sugar

I like to use cane sugar but maple syrup or honey are also lovely! I always use maple syrup when I make my quick roasted & picked beets! You can also use any other type of sugar you have kicking around.

  1. Kosher Salt

I like to use kosher salt as I find it has a lovely strong flavour. You can also use sea salt but I’d avoid using table salt as it just doesn’t give the same flavour. Typically, the amount of salt you need to add to your brine is equal to 2% of the total weight of the vegetables you’d like to pickle.

  1. Peppercorns

I love to add peppercorns to my pickle to give a little depth of flavour. Feel free to add other spices as you like! See below for more options.

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT PICKLED RADISHES

It is SO incredibly easy to make the Perfect Pickled Radishes! This recipe is not the same as traditional pickling, which requires sterilizing of the jars and lids. With this method, the radishes wont last quite as long in the refrigerator, but don’t worry, they’ll still be good for at least 2 weeks (if they last that long)!

STEP 1: To make your brine, add boiling (or very hot) water to a mason jar. Then add cane sugar & kosher salt, then mix to dissolve.

STEP 2: Prepare your radishes. Clean radishes & cut off green tops & bottoms. I like to slice my radishes with a mandolin to save time and to keep each slice equal size. You can also use a sharp knife to slice thinly, or slice into chunks.

STEP 3: Add radishes & peppercorns to the brine. I like to let the brine cool before adding the radishes as I don’t like them to be soft. You can also cool your vinegar mix ahead of time to speed up the cooling.

Step 4: Refrigerate your pickled radishes & they’ll be ready to eat in as little as 20-30 minutes! The longer the radishes pickle, the stronger the flavour will be. I find they last really well for about 2 weeks, but I prefer to eat them within 1 week. The pickled radishes will start off with bright pink red edges & white inside, however, after a few hours in the fridge, they will turn a pretty pink like the picture below.

Notes

  • The longer the radishes pickle, the stronger the flavour will be.
  • I find they last really well for about 2 weeks, but I prefer to eat them within 1 week.
  • Nutrition Value is based on 1 serving of pickled radishes but includes the brine. Since we don’t eat the brine, the actual amount of sodium & sugars are significantly less but very difficult to estimate.
  • If you find the flavour too intense, simply increase the volume of water and decrease the vinegar.
  • The pickled radishes will start off with bright pink red edges & white inside, however, after a few hours in the fridge, they will turn a pretty pink!
