Instant yellow pickled radish with turmeric


Yellow pickled radish is a staple side dish in Korea. It’s called Danmuji: 단무지 in Korean. This yellow pickled radish is super easy to make and packed with tangy flavor and nutrition.  


I upgraded this Korean staple dish to make them instantly, yet full of flavors. The yellow pickled radish also uses organic apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and licorice which are known to lower the inflammation in the body.

Also, licorice root is known to improve your gut health and support your immune system.

The yellow pickled radish best served chilled.


This pickled radish is cold, crunchy, sour with a hint of sweetness. This will make a perfect side dish for any summer BBQ.


Enjoy the gift from Mother Nature.

easy mild kimchi recipe



It makes about a half gallon jar


Prep: 15 minutes   Active: 15 minutes


DISH PAIRING TIP:  Korean Pork Hock


daikon radish, sliced this into thin wheels, about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm)


For brine:

1 ½ cup organic apple cider vinegar

1 ½ cup water

1 ½ tsp organic turmeric powder

⅓ tsp organic licorice powder.



  1. In a large pot, add all the ingredients for the brine. Mix this well together.
  2. Then, taste it. It should taste a little pungent and extra sour because it’s going to brine an entire daikon radish.
  3. Bring this to a boil. When it bubbles up on the side of a pan, turn the heat off.
  4. Add the daikon radish that we prepared earlier. Using a spoon, simply stir the pot a couple of times.
  5. Leave it at room temperature until it’s cool enough to pack in a jar. Then, pack it in a glass container and keep it in the refrigerator.
  6. Serve them chilled with your favorite BBQ or Korean Pork hock dish.
