1 Red Radish
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Japanese rice vinegar
1 TBSP salt
1 cup sugar ( to make healthier use less to your liking or omit)
Heat Water, Vinegar, sugar, 1 TBSP salt just enough to dissolve the sugar and salt.
While waiting for the water to heat, Slice the veggies into very thin discs, the daikon and carrot at angle very thin.
Once the sugar and salt has dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature if you prefer crisper veggies.
Add veggies to the liquid and put in jars.
Store in jars for up to one week in refrigerator.
You can add or subtract any of the root vegetables above. My favorites are radish and cucumbers!
This was my Obachan's (Japanese grandmother's) recipe that was passed down to me. It is also posted in my blog with some other easy recipes 😊 I hope you enjoy it!
I just got back from Japan and tried my hand at some Japanese cooking. Really not handy in the kitchen, so kinda proud of what I made :) Recipes used in post.
I forgot to pound the chicken breast. Made the frying time longer and the meat a bit too dry. Served on Japanese sushi rice.
Made the day before, stored a small portion in the fridge and froze the rest for later. Served at room temperature
Made using my Crockpot. Bought the spicy curry roux cubes in Japan :) the site says 8 portions, but added less water because I read somewhere this recipe will turn out too watery. Got 4 portions out of it. Froze two, hoping the vegetables will survive being frozen.
The radishes didn't turn as red as the recipe mentions. Perhaps should have dried the radishes some more? Currently have a more extensive fukujinzuke recipe sitting in my fridge, but have to wait a few more days for it to settle.
Just Dashi powder, scallions, sauteed spinach, and Miso paste.

It sounds really interesting and I wouldn't mind getting a hold of some to try it out. I'm also looking for a source in the U.S. if anyone knows of one.
