This Takuan, made by drying and pickling a daikon mooli radish, has a sharp, tangy flavour and soft yet crunchy texture. It is usually eaten in thin slices as one of a number of accompaniments alongside rice and miso soup. Refrigerate once opened and consume as soon as possible.

ITEM ID: #4838

Background

Takuan, named after the Buddhist priest said to have created this delicacy, is a dried and pickled daikon mooli radish. To make takuan, a daikon was hung out in the sun for a few weeks to dry, then placed in a pickling crock and covered with salt, rice bran, kombu, chilli pepper and dried persimmon peels. A weight was then placed on the crock and the daikon was allowed to pickle for several months. These days mass-produced takuan is created by drying out the daikon with salt or syrup.

How To Use

Takuan can be used in a number of ways:
• Eat in thin slices as a side dish with any meal.
• Add to salad for a bit of zest.
• Accompany beer as a traditional snack.
• add thin strips to sushi rolls for a burst of pickle flavour.
Once opened please keep refrigerated and consume as soon as possible.
