Quick and Easy Pickled Radishes

I’m kinda nutty about pickles. I love having a vegetarian bowl that includes some great pickled vegetables as part of the mix.

There’s been some debate over studies that conclude that most pickled vegetables are great for your health, adding good stuff to your intestinal flora, nourishing your skin, hair and muscle tone, while boosting your immune system—the caveat being moderation, especially since at least three studies shows that excessive pickled food intake can cause stomach and gastric cancers! So, moderation is obviously key to enjoying delicious pickled veggies and benefiting from them.

GD Lisa and I had a hankering to pickle something quick and easy and decided the radishes in the local store looked ravishing. We kept it simple and used only a few ingredients that she had handy. It was ridiculously simple and the jar almost immediately started turning a really pretty shade of deep pink. Hey, who doesn’t love a pretty jar of easy pickled radishes?

You can do the same with one part of vinegar and two of water, better bottled or purified , this way it is more smoother. The difference it has to be consumed sooner. All kind of vegetables can be used and mixed in the jar.
