Pickled Purple Radish

May 31, 2010

Ginger & Radish

I bought a bundle of gorgeous purple radish and turned them into a puckeringly crispy pickle. The hot brine caused the purple radish skin to bleed and turn the pickles a delightful shade of little piggy pink.

Makes about 1 cup

1 bunch of radishes, any colour, thinly sliced

4 thin slices fresh ginger

6 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons agave

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Pack radish and ginger slices into a heatproof jar or glass. In a small pot, bring vinegar, water, agave and sea salt to a simmer. Pour over radish and ginger. Let cool, cover and store in fridge. Pickles will be ready to eat when chilled through, about four hours. They’ll keep in the fridge for a few days. It really couldn’t be easier, purple or pinker.

    What a great idea and so pretty. I’m definitely going to try this one! I’ve pickled red onions and turnips in much the same way.
