DIY: Carrot and Radish Vinegar Pickles

Print

I love pickles of all types! This carrot/radish combo was inspired by a recent trip to the farmer’s market, where gorgeous purple carrots and easter egg radishes were on display. I keep the veggies raw so they are still super crunchy after curing and they are wonderful with a chunk of cheese or finely chopped and folded into chicken salad.

 

Further Food Commentary:

The addition of raw vinegar to this recipe ensures a dose of living beneficial bacteria to support your digestive system. Incorporating raw vinegar can help keep blood insulin levels in check and fight off "bad bugs". Using maple syrup as the sweetener gives you a boost of zinc, manganese and potassium along with the nice flavor.
