Title: Pickled Radishes
Post by: M1911A1 on June 05, 2018, 04:21:31 PM
Our down-the-block neighbor has turned her property into a small farm. She has several children, and therefore lots of free labor. (Her husband is one of our better automobile mechanics.)

This is radish season, and the small farm is knee-deep in ready-to-eat radishes. They're giving them away by the pound, and we've so far received two big batches. I turned the last batch into pickles. Although they're not "done" yet, the pickling liquid tastes good, so I know that the finished product will be very good indeed.

• Slice the radishes thin, into maybe 1/8”-thick slices. • Thinly slice some onion, too, and layer into a jar with the radishes. • Mix together 1/2 cup vinegar (white or cider), 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. mustard seeds, 1 bay leaf, and 1/4 cup water.* • Bring vinegar mixture to a boil, and then pour it all into the jar of radish slices. • Cover the jar tightly and refrigerate for at least four hours. The finished pickle is good for at least four months. *You could also add 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper to the liquid, before boiling it. But I didn’t.

When you start your mail order catalog and have a jar available let me know.
I would like to pre-order one jar for testing.

Well, I guess that we'll have to start growing our own...

Hmmm! I may have to add some radishes to my 'Pickled Bologna' recipe.

The pickled radishes were so good that they're gone already!
That was quick!


Now I've pickled a 50-50 mix of daikon and carrot, in white vinegar, salt, and sugar.
I probably should've added some shaved ginger, but I didn't have any on hand.
I ate some last night, with the teriyaki chicken I made, and rice. Yes, it, too, was very good!
(Jean hates it, so it's mine. All mine.)

OK! . . . . So now you have page two of your new catalog.
It is very important that you start now making up your mailing list.
Actually the Teriyaki Chicken should be paired with your Daikon and carrots on the same page.
I do prefer the small red radishes over the long white weird version if I have a choice.
Can't help it . . . . . It is the way my Mom raised me.

Is it best to shave Ginger with a straight razor, a safety razor, or an electric razor?

Ginger says that an electric razor tickles, so that's what she prefers.
Jean says that if I use her electric razor on Ginger, it'll be "lights out" for me.
...So I intend to shave Ginger just before bedtime.
