Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot, peeled, cut into strips 1/8-inch square and 3 inches long (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium daikon radish, peeled, cut into strips 1/8-inch square and 3 inches long (about 2 cups)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup rice wine vinegar

 

Instructions:

Combine carrots, radish, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Using fingertips, massage salt and sugar into vegatables until dissolved. Add water and rice vinegar. Pack vegetables into a quart-sized mason jar. Pickles can be used immediately, or for best results, seal jar and refrigerate at least overnight and up to 1 week.
