I found this recipe here and am determined to keep it on hand always. My version is slightly different, so here you go.
- radishes, thinly sliced
- several cloves of garlic, sliced
- red pepper flakes (I put these in an empty tea bag to put into the jar--you can buy these fillable tea bags at any Japanese supermarket)
- 1/2 cup rice vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons sugar (I used Okinawan brown sugar because that's what I keep on hand)
- 2 teaspoons salt
Fill your jar with radishes and garlic, alternating layers, then mix the liquid and sugar and salt together and pour over the top. Stuff the tea bag with red pepper flakes down in the side.
Put in the fridge for half an hour or so and then devour!
