We don't buy vegetables that need to spend days on a truck to reach the pickle factory. In the wintertime when we can no longer buy domestically grown cucumbers, we are team daikon.
Daikon radishes can grow in the fall and winter at farms in MD, VA and PA. What's even better about the daikon radish? It pickles and fermented beautifully.
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 that 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?!
