making pickles

slice raddish
sprinkle some salt (lightly)
put a small plate over
...then, put heavy pot over the plate
wait for about 15 min or so
you can take a break and have a cup of tea while you wait
after about 15-20min, extra water comes out
squeeze out water and put raddish in a jar
put sweet venegar (venegar + sugar boiled to get
rid of sourness till sugar melt, let it cool) and
hot pepper, yuzu peel
if you don't have them, you can just do with hot pepper if you like hot 
i used my yuzu peel that i frozed not too long ago

give it about 4-5 days
but usually i can't help myself wanting to taste after few days

now, you can have a little play time with left over leaf
chopped them up in small pieces
sautee with pecan and sesame seed
salt, pepper, drizzle of soy souce
enjoy fresh vege sautee like this


  1. looks great! i'll sure try it. is yuzu taste like lemon? looks as if it will fit there.

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe Coco...I'm going to give this a try. Looks delicious.

  3. If I can get some daikon (and hopefully some yuzu), I will definitely try your recipes!

  4. thanks a lot! Try it out as soon as possible. I like to have pickles as a snack or if I have nothing else at home and am too tired to go out and do some shopping! It's one of the best things to have stock in house :-)
