Recipe for Takuan- A Quick Pickled Daikon


Just thought I’d share a pic of my takuan- a quick pickled daikon from my New Year’s Eve sushi fest….🍣🍾
Super easy to make and sooo crunchy and delicious, it’s hard not to eat the whole jar before rollin’ it up with rice!
Wanna try yourself at home?
1 small daikon radish.
1 tbsp salt
1/2 cup rice vinegar.
1/2 cup water.
1/2 cup white sugar.
-peel daikon and cut into thin rounds or strips.
-sprinkle with salt and let sit for 2 hours to pull out moisture.
-dry daikon with paper towel, squeezing out excess moisture and place in mason jar.
-combine sugar, rice vinegar, and water in a small saucepan and bring to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.
-pour brine over radish in jar and allow 2 days in the refrigerator to pickle.
That’s it! You can add a touch of tumeric for an authentic yellow colour, and a few slices of ginger for a bit of extra zing if that’s your thing!
