    Do you like pickled radishes?

    Pickled radishes come up in Daniel Humm's Eleven Madison Park as well as I Love NY and are featured in a lot of his dishes. However, I tried making it a few times, but they turn out horrible every time. The method is 8 quartered small radishes + 1cup oiled vinegar + 1 tbsp salt + 1 tbsp sugar. The bitterness of the radish, when met with hot vinegar, turns into what I think is a horrible taste. Do you like pickled radishes? If so, how do you make them?

    I don't use oiled vinegar I used distilled white vinegar and they seem to turn out just fine. I also don't heat up the vinegar. You can add the radishes and whatever you want to add with it be it carrot slices garlic etc then add the vinegar, sugar and salt in a sterilized mason jar. Then I put the cap on and refrigerate.

    I think this recipe is for a quick pickle. You are not going to get the flavor development as you would a long pickle. Double the salt and triple the sugar and add mustard seeds, chili flakes, 10 whole toasted coriander seeds and 6 whole black pepper corns and one clove of garlic. put the radishes in a mason jar, pour the vinegar mixture over the top and seal lid. refrigerate for 1 week and enjoy.

    Is this an alternative recipe for quick pickle, or long pickle?

    And when you are pickling, are you not supposed to open the jar during the process?

    Yes, I do.

    I hot pickle mine, but cold works too. I also do not use oiled vinegar, either white or champagne.

    this is a middle pickle, I don't open the jar during the process some do. I do not use oiled vinegar either. Distilled white vinegar or apple cider vinegar works well.

    I open mine all the time and keep eating them until they are ready.
