Pickled Radishes

Recipe here. This is a basic pickling recipe which could be used for any type of veg – I’ve tried kohlrabi which was really nice. Can add in whatever spices you want for flavour!


  • Bunch of radishes
  • 1/2 cup white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black seeds
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf


  • Place radishes in a hot, sterilised 1-pint jar. Bring vinegar, sugar, water, salt, spices and bay leaf to a boil in an enamelled saucepan
  • Ladle hot pickling liquid over radishes. Wipe jar rim. Centre lid on jar. Apply band, and adjust to fingertip-tight. Let cool on a wire rack ( about 1 hour). Chill 6 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator up to 4 months.
