We grew about 20 of them in our garden. We were very successful and we quickly had 20 daikon to eat. We made a stir fry out of them (See below), but that only uses one of them up. We decided to try to pickle them.
We tried four recipes:
1. Chinese Pickled daikon
2. Bahn Mi (Vietnamese version) (we tried two of these kind)
3. Sweet picked daikon
Of the three, Jon and I agree that the best is the sweet pickled daikon, followed by the bahn mi, then the chinese pickled daikon. It's fun pickling and actually rather easy! Now that we have more experience, we hope to pickle cucumbers. We canned them, too so we don't have eat them quickly. We will certainly be pickling more daikon so we don't waste it!
