(Tardy) Random Recipes: Sweet and Sour Radishes

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 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.

In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, wine, sugar, sesame oil, and water. Pour the mixture over the radishes and let stand in the sauce for at least 20 minutes.
