Quick Pickled Radishes
This quick pickled radish recipe from Love and Lemons puts the “rad” in radish! Seriously, all puns aside, this recipe is nutritious, perfectly simple, and an amazing way to add tangy flavor and complexity to dishes. Slap these pickled radishes on tacos, burgers, sandwiches, salads, or snack on them as-is! They keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks which is more than enough time to incorporate these pickled root veggies into a myriad of meals.
- 4 bunches radishes
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 2½ Tbsp cane sugar
- 1 Tbsp sea salt
- ½ tsp mixed peppercorns
- ½ tsp mustard seeds
Thinly slice or halve the radishes and divide between 4 (11.5-ounce) jars or equivalent.
Heat the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar and salt dissolve, about 1 minute.
Pour the brine over the radishes, then stir in the peppercorns and mustard seeds. Let cool and chill until ready to use. Pickled radish slices will be ready to eat in about 1 hour, radish halves are best when pickled overnight.
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
