  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 pound radish


  • Thinly cut the radish. Using a mandoline is highly recommend for easy thin and uniform slices. Place into a jar or airtight container.
    *I did not because ours is missing, but it was very time consuming!
  • Mix the sugar, vinegar, water and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer until all of the salt and sugar have dissolved. Pour over the radish slices.
  • Allow the mixture to come to room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
