Pickled daikon - {takuan}

Yield: 3 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 mediums Daikon radish; peeled
¼ cup Pickling salt -; (no iodine)
¼ cup Distilled white vinegar
¼ cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Yellow food coloring
1 Drid chile pepper; chopped - (optional)
1 cup Water

Prepare the daikon by slicing and placing it in clean canning jars. Boil all the brine ingredients together to dissolve the sugar. Cool the liquid.

Pour over the sliced daikon and place in the refrigerator. Shake the jars occasionally. The pickle will be ready to eat in about two days.

Comments: This is another pickle that is common on the Japanese table. In the earlier days our Japanese immigrant ancestors simply grew the vegetables from the old country here in the new. And thus the pickles.
