Similarly sour to our Super Sour pickles, our Dilly Daikons are packed with garlic. We add dill and our pickling spice blend. The daikon radish spears remain deliciously crunchy even after fermenting in a barrel for weeks! Some of our farmers market buddies now ask us for Dilly Daikons year-round :) Dare we say: we might be giving up cucumbers to be TEAM DAIKON.
Add Dilly Daikon to a cheese plate or anywhere that you would normally eat a sour, crunchy cucumber pickle. Like straight out of the jar, in your PJs, in front of the fridge at 2 AM in the morning?!
Ingredients: Daikons, water, salt, spices, dill, garlic, splash of vinegar
Fermentation time: A few weeks
Vegan, gluten-free and naturally probiotic, brimming with good bacteria
When cucumbers aren't as readily available during the colder winter months, we source daikon radishes that can grow locally in the cold from Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania farms. Our winter 2020/2021 daikon radishes were grown by ecoganic Earth Spring Farm. We love Farmer Mike + met him at the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market! He has worked tirelessly to figure out the best growing methods to grow our daikon radishes :)
