Mama makes the most delicious radish pickles and they are a great way to preserve a bumper harvest in the early spring. If you've purchased our French Breakfast Radish seeds you are familiar with the mild and rich flavor of this heirloom French radish variety.
Making radish refrigerator pickles is a simple process and the radishes keep in the refrigerator for up to 8 months, although it's unlikely that they will last that long!
Here is how we make them:
First, pick a bunch of radishes from the garden and then wash them well.
Next, get a clean glass jar. (this isn't a sterile process because the radishes go in the fridge)
Slice the radishes however you like.
Bring one part water and one part vinegar to a boil and add 1 tbsp. sugar and 1 tbsp. salt per two cups of liquid. Stir until the sugar and salt dissolve.
Fill your clean jar with radishes and pour the vinegar mixture over the radishes so that the liquid reaches the top of the jar.
Allow the jar to cool and then store in the refrigerator. We usually wait a week before enjoying the pickles, but your can eat them right away if you are unable to wait!
We hope you enjoy this simple recipe and French breakfast radish seeds are available in our seed catalog!
