Takuwan (pickled Japanese turnip)
How to Make Takuwan (pickled Japanese turnip)
- Boil together:
sugar, water, vinegar, monosodium glutamate (if using)
- cool and add the yellow food coloring, (A few drops at a time till you get the color you like.)doesn't take much to get a pretty pale yellow color.
- Pour over vegetables that have been put in steralized jars and refrigerate.
- Note: regarding the turnips that have been soaking in the salt overnight.. I rinse the salt off and then add the turnips to the jars and then do step #3
- I let the pickles sit in the refrigerator for a few days or even a week so the syrup will incorporate into the daikon and it will taste sooo ono (good)!!!
