“These daikon pickles are a recipe from Barbara Tropp. My daughter #2 loves these. Daughter # 3 prefers an alternate recipe I make. Things get confusing around our house when I try to please everyone at once. Any way, this is an easy pickle, flavors improve as it sits, lasts a while under refrigeration. The ginger/lemon flavors really come through here. I use a mandoline to get perfect thin slices. Most days I leave the jalapenos out, and just use the pepper flakes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover the daikon with boiling water and let sit for 1 1/2 minutes. Drain and immediately cool down with an ice bath. Drain again.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir as it's coming up to temperature. When it gets to the boil, add the daikon slices, cover the pot and remove from the heat.
  3. Cool to room temperature, transfer from the saucepan into a clean container and then store in the refrigerator, still in the pickling liquid.
