What to do with a major surplus of radishes? A gift from my local farm market- or more like a challenge. There aren't too many radish recipes out there :-)
Makes about 6 250ml jars
2 lbs radishes, shredded
1 cup onions, diced
2-inch ginger, peeled and grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp yellow mustard seed
Combine vinegar, sugar, salt, coriander, cumin and mustard seed in a large stainless steel or enameled dutch oven and bring to a boil. Add the radishes, onion, ginger, and garlic. Return to a boil, stirring until all the ingredients are heated through. Remove from heat.
Ladle relish into four hot half pint jars filling to 1/4 " of headspace between the top of the liquid and the lid. Remove air with plastic spatula and refill to 1/4 " if necessary.
Wipe the rims with a wet papertowel, add hot lids and rings. Process in boiling water or steam bath for 15 minutes, adjust for altitude.
