Quick Pickled Daikon Radish and Carrots

Tue, 04/04/2023 - 13:52

Quick pickling is a method of pickling vegetables by soaking them in a vinegar-based solution for a short period of time, usually overnight. Quick pickles are also called refrigerator pickles because they must be stored in the refrigerator and eaten within four weeks, as opposed to canned or fermented vegetables which are processed to make them shelf stable.
