24-Hour Refrigerator Danmuji (Korean Pickled Radish)

in hive-174578 •  5 days ago 

Hey guys! I'm going to make quick & easy Danmuji today. It usually takes a few days to make Danmuji, but with this recipe you can make it in 24 hours in the refrigerator.

To be honest, not many people make Danmuji at home, because you can get it in any grocery store in Korea at affordable prices. Since I moved to Vietnam I'm making Danmuji at home, and it's not that difficult and you can see all the ingredients so it's safer and healthier!

Ingredients

• 1/2 medium-size Korean radish or Daikon
• 1 Tbsp salt (for pickling the radish)
• 2 cups water
• 1 cup vinegar
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/4 Tbsp salt (for the pickling juice)
• 3-4 sliced beet (optional)

Steps:

You can have Danmuji as just normal side dish, but I'm going to make a vivid color of Kimbab next time ;) Thanks for reading!
