Does it keep? 2-3 weeks



  • 1 bundle radishes, greens removed, chopped into bite-size pieces (or thinly slice if planning to use on sandwiches/in wraps)


  • 2/3 cup distilled white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water (for stronger flavor, sub more vinegar)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp organic cane sugar (or stevia to taste)


  • Add chopped or sliced radish to a large mason jar or glass container. Set aside.
  • To a small saucepan add distilled white vinegar, water, salt, and sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir to fully dissolve salt and sugar. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more salt or sugar to taste.
  • Pour the brine over the radish, ensuring the slices are fully submerged. If needed, add more vinegar or a little water to cover.
  • Seal well and shake to combine. Then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The flavors will deepen and intensify the longer it marinates. Best flavor is achieved after 24 hours.
  • Will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks (sometimes longer). Not freezer friendly.

    Should I let the brine cool down before pouring it over the radishes? Is there a benefit to adding the brine will hot/warm or does it matter? Thanks!

      Hi Mary, we’d recommend adding it when still warm. But it doesn’t make a huge difference.
