A pickled Japanese delicacy.

Sink your teeth into a classic delicacy from the Japanese pickle family with this pickled daikon mooli radish, or takuan. This radish has a light savoury-sweet flavour, made possible with slowly matured, salt cured dried daikon radish from Yamagata prefecture, as well as bonito flakes for an extra layer of umami. Enjoy this takuan in slices either on its own or served with rice. 

Item weight may vary.

Background

From appearing on the side of Japanese curries to having their own little compartment in a full-size bento box, pickles are an important and underrated component of Japanese cuisine. These thin slices of vegetables, heavily saturated in a preserving seasoning, often form the sour component of a traditional Japanese meal. For an exciting range of traditional Japanese pickles, take a look at Japan Centre's Pickles section.

How To Use

Use this takuan in any number of ways:
• Eat as a side dish with any meal.
• Add thin slices to salad for a bit of zest.
• Accompany beer as a traditional snack.
Once opened please keep refrigerated and consume as soon as possible.
