  • 600 g/21.2oz radish

  1. Wash and peel carrots & radish.

  5. In a pot, bring the rest of the ingredients to a simmer over high. Once it's simmering, turn off the heat and let it cool down until merely warm.
  6. Pour the mixture into the container filled with the veggies, wait for everything to cool down and close the lid.
  7. Let everything rest for at least a day.
