I am having a bit of a moment with pickles. Something pickled lands up on my plate at least once a day and I simply can not get enough. I just love how pickled foods enhance anything else you serve it with. Pickled jalapeños on a rich fish taco add just the right amount of acid and heat to cut through the deep-fried fish. Pickled cucumbers on a burger do the same and these pickled radishes add bright zing to anything you serve it with. It’s pretty clear why the whole world has gone a bit crazy for pickles.

The best part of pickles is that they are SO easy to make yourself. All you need is a jar, the vegetable you’d like to pickle and pickling liquid. The jars in question are of course beautiful Ball® jars. They are absolutely iconic and I think (don’t quote me on this) that they actually make the pickles taste better.

This pickled radish recipe is from the Ball® jars website and could not be easier. You simply slice up the raw, washed radishes, place them in a jar and fill them with the hot pickling liquid. It takes a few minutes to prepare but then the hard part comes. Waiting for them to pickle. But it is SO worth it because these easy pickled radishes are absolute perfection. They are sharp, bright and zingy and add such beautiful color and flavor to anything you serve them with.

It’s also a great home-made gift. Can you even imagine a more perfect hostess gift? Didn’t think so!

    If these are canned, do they have to be refrigerated? How long will they last if not refrigerated?

      I’m sure as long as you make sure your jar and lid are properly sanitized they should last for at least 3 months out of the fridge.

      Hi. Can you be a bit more specific how much a bunch is? Either in pounds or approx. Radishes.

      • Alida Ryder

        You would need approximately 6 cups of radishes, depending on their size. Enough to fill the jar you’re using.

    I agree with you – pickles enhance the flavors of dishes tenfold! I would throw these radishes on literally everything.

    OMG and here I thought I was the only creative “pickler” to have thought of using radishes to pickle. Here in Hawaii, produce, as well as EVERYTHING! is expensive since items, not grown locally, must be shipped here to our islands. Thus, one day, I spotted some cheaper-than-white-turnips red radishes at our farmer’s market, and bought them to use for my Japanese pickles. Family and friends loved this “new idea” esp since it did not use the typical artificial yellow food coloring…always a must for the popular Japanese Takuwan Turnip pickles recipes.
    Putting them in Ball jars would make them extra special! Talk about Ball jars, they will again be a part of my life on my berry-picking trip to Oregon next month. My son-in-law is taking me on my first, looked forward to for decades trip to pick and preserve blackberries which I’ve never seen or prepared in my lifetime, having grown up in Hawaii. Wish me luck as I’ve heard that picking blackberries, with all of their thorns, is not easy! Being a senior citizen, I hope I can correctly credit you on Facebook, to be eligible to winning your pickling kit! Thank you for your sharing of this radish pickle recipe!
    Aloha! Faith Shido

    I’d do a something sweet for an amazing addition to a cheese platter, red grapes or kamquats!

    I LOVE making homemade pickles Alida, but have yet to try pickled radishes! I’m definitely game though! On my list! They sound delish!

      You really must! They have quite a cabbagey vibe to them once they’re pickled which I really like.

        I really appreciate your step by step instruction. I think I’ll buy some radishes and some chili. I like spicy food. They can be made into spicy?
