Quick dinner idea:
Serve hot roasted chicken meat on a crusty baguette with your home made pickled veggies. Great for a summer picnic. Try adding a sprinkle of cilantro and some thin slices of jalapeno. Make your own version of Bánh mì.
A note to make your refrigerator pickles and ferments last:
Be sure to use a clean utensil to pull pickles from the jar. Don’t use your grimy little fingers for sure! The whole batch can “go bad” by introducing some new bacteria into the mix. Keep them clean and the pickles and ferments can last a long while.
Refrigerator Pickled Radishes and Onions
Or Kohlrabi & Turnips
Or all of the above!
- 1 large sweet onion sliced into 1/4” thick rings
- As many radishes, kohlrabi or turnips as you have in your box (1 qt or more), coarsely grated or chopped
- 3/4-1 C sugar
- 1 C cider or white vinegar
- 1 TBS sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, optional
- 1 C water
In a heavy, non reactive sauce pan combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are translucent.
Refrigerate in an air tight container. Keeps up to two weeks.
