quick fridge pickled radish

_MG_0684

Oh this is the most exciting time of year in the garden, finally flush abundance in every corner!

The strawberry are bursting, the first snow peas were picked today, radishes are erupting from the earth, and the carrots are screaming to be thinned! The odd blueberry is ripe enough to sneak a taste of, and the scapes have come and gone.

There are only so many radishes one family can eat! I have dutifully added them to every daily salad, and opted to add them into our favorite hot and sour soup as a water-chestnut-ish addition. And today I decided to slice some up thin and make a easy refrigerator pickle with them., and they look lovely! I am sure they will be spicy and perfect to top tacos with!

I just shot from the hip here, and I am sure we will all enjoy these results!

 

Fill one 500 ml mason jar with thinly sliced radishes

toss in 1 tbsp mustard seeds

and a pinch of chilli flakes or any other optional seasonings you like in your pickles

 

In a small saucepan combine:

1 cup apple cider vinegar

1 cup water

2 tbsp fresh raw honey

1 tbsp sea salt

Simmer over medium heat until combined, then pour into mason jar.

Cool, cover and refrigerate… enjoy after the radishes have had a few days to soak up their pickle bath!

These will keep well for a few weeks in the fridge.
