February was my first month participating in a fun event - Random Recipes - that I discovered on Belleau Kitchen. I completely blitzed on the project last month, but decided to jump back in for June when we are celebrating the 40th month with a 40-40 combo - pick the 40th cookbook off your shelf and flip to the 40th page. Click for the details: here.
Okay, I failed again. I missed the posting deadline. Damn. I will get back in the Random Recipe saddle one of these months. But I made and posted anyway because this was such a fun, easy, and delicious recipe.
I got The Glass Pantry by Georgeanne Brennan. Wow! I completely forgot about that book. Thanks for reminding me that I owned it. In any case...it was book #40. Page #40: Sweet and Sour Radishes!
This post contains an affiliate link at the bottom - for the book.
- 2 bunches organic radishes
- 1 t sea salt
- 1 T soy sauce
- 2 T vinegar (I used a thyme-infused white wine vinegar)
- 1 t wine (I used a Pinot Grigio)
- 1 t organic granulated sugar
- 2 T toasted sesame oil
- 1 T water
Using the back of a wooden spoon or mallet, hit each radish just hard enough to split it open - but not hard enough to crush it. I bruised the heel of my hand; these suckers were crisp and hard!
Place the radishes in a shallow glass bowl and sprinkle them with salt. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes.
