Pickled Radishes

pickled radishes

Ahoy, fellow food lovers!  How was your week?  I hope that whether it was a breeze or whether it was filled with times that made you want to kick the sofa, it still included something delicious, and possibly cheese-filled. 😄

Let’s chat about pickled foods, shall we?  A few years ago the only pickled thing I ever ate regularly were, well, pickles.  Shocking, right?  Haha.  Actually, when I was a kid I was kind of a pickle freak.  I wanted them on EVERYTHING.  One of my favorite sandwiches was pickles and Velveeta cheese.  I had a real refined palate, didn’t I?  😂

One pickled thing I absolutely hated was beets.  Boy, the jar opened and I was out of the room.  And pickled herring?  Yeah, right…nice try.

Then a couple years ago I tried pickled green beans, and I was immediately hooked.  It wasn’t too long before I was eating pickled cauliflower, pickled onions, and these little darlings: pickled radishes.  Nom nom!

I’ve always been a fan of radishes, even when I was a tiny little thing.  It was probably the first food I ever ate that was somewhat spicy.  And having them pickled makes them even better.  These are a touch sweet, a touch spicy, and totally satisfying.  Salads will never be the same again.  Plus they take a whole ten minutes to make.

Even though I’m a fan of the pickled things now, I will admit that I’m still not quite there on pickled herring.  That one might still take a while. 😀

    I love these pickled radishes! I’ve never tried pickling anything, but pickled radishes sound amazing!

      Thanks, Shelby! Now I just need to get brave enough to try canning again!

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried pickled radishes before! What a great way to use radishes. 🙂

    I’ve never had pickled radishes before. They have a gorgeous pink hue!

      Thanks, Eva! I kind of liked the color too! They kind of remind me of Barbie’s dream house. 😄

    I’ve had pickled beets and pickles before, but thats about it! I definitely need to try these radishes, though. Sounds like it gives them such a great flavor! And pickled green beans?! Oh…I’m intrigued! 🙂

      Thanks, Gayle! Oh, you have to try pickled green beans. They actually taste a lot like pickles, but they are great in pasta salads at BBQs.

    How pretty are these! I’ve been toying with the idea of pickling onions for quite some time…I’m going for it! And I’ll pickle some radishes right along with them!

    • Amanda August 8, 2016, 9:27 am

      Yum! I could go for pickled onions right about now! Thanks, Annie!

    My mouth is all like “O” at this recipe because I am in love with pickled radishes!!! There is a restaurant near me that serves them as a little side dish and I am obsessed. Thank you for the DIY alternative!

    • Amanda August 8, 2016, 9:28 am

      What a great side dish. I would go to that restraint all the time! Thanks!
