- Bunch of Radishes
- 1 Cup White Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is an option

- 1 tsp Canning Salt
- 2 Tsp Pickling Spice
- Optional is to add red pepper flakes for spicy pickled radishes
Steps in Preparing and Canning Pickled Radishes
The first step for the pickled radish recipe is to pick the fresh radish from your garden.
The next step is to give the radishes a good rinse and get all of the dirt off.
Then slice the radishes in thin slices. You can use a mandoline slicer to make the radish slices thinner.
Add the sliced radishes to the canning jars.
In the meantime bring the water, vinegar, sugar, canning salt and pickling spices to a boil in a small saucepan to make the pickling liquid.
Pour the hot liquid over the radish slices into the jars and leave 1/2 inch headspace. The brine fills about 1 1/2 pint-sized jar of radishes, and will need to be adjusted to make more. I made a second batch and filled my 3 jars. Remove air bubbles, wipe the jar rim and add the lids.
Add the canning jars to the hot water bath and process at high heat at a full rolling boil for 15 minutes. I use the Ball electric water bath canner and love it.
Remove the hot jars from the boiling water bath with a jar lifter and place them on a dish towel on the counter. Do not disturb for 24 hours.
This easy pickled radishes recipe is such a great way to use extra radishes from your garden! They are great on hot dogs and hamburgers and with tacos and nachos! They go with any meat, like pulled pork and roast beef. They are also a delicious snack or side dish.
