DIRECTIONS

  • Wash daikon well. Bundle two daikon by leaves and using clothes line dry in a location with sun and good ventiliation. Bring them indoors at night. Takes 1 week drying.
  • After 1 week drying, mix together rice bran or nuka, salt, and sugar or brown sugar (organic is good). Cut off the leaves and keep for use later.
  • Place about 1-2 cm layer of nuka mixture in the bottom of a large pickling container. Place daikon neatly in layers on top of the mixture.
  • Top off with the remainder of nuka mixture. Place the leaves from the daikon on top.
  • Place a heavy plastic over the the mixture. Place a heavy rock or another object for weight. The weight needed is usually 2-3 times the weight of daikon. If 1 daikon weighs 1 pound then about 2-3 pound weight.
  • After 1 month it is ready to slice and eat. See photos of the steps at http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=320927.
  • Serving is a total guess.
