I am having so much fun with pickling!
I made some fermented broccoli-slaw that is so strong it will practically make your face collapse in on itself… but I will save that for another post.
These radishes turned out super Pretty in Pink, but with a One-Two Pickled Pho punch! They make even the most mundane of sandwiches transcendent! Unfortunately, I have been unable to calculate the nutritional info for fermented recipes, since magic and bacteria happen and gum up my math. So I say: Enjoy them with Abandon! No Caloric-Calculations means “guilt free”, right? 😉
10 oz fresh radishes
1 ½ Tbs sea salt
1 “spice packet” from Quoc Viet Vegetarian Pho Soup Base
5 star anise pods
4 cardamom pods
4 cloves garlic (peeled and smashed)
1” fresh peeled ginger
½ tsp coriander seeds
½ tsp whole cloves
2 cups purified water
