Low-Amine “Soy Sauce” Carrot Pickles, Low-Amine Traditional Cucumber Pickles, and Low-Amine “Kimchee” Radish Pickles.
I made three kinds of low-amine pickles last week. All are made with low-amine ingredients (carrot, cucumber, and radish), and prepared in a low-amine method. The vegetables had to salt in the fridge overnight, but that’s about the most ageing these low-amine pickles did.
6 medium carrots
4 large pickling cucumbers (or one narrow English cucumber)
1 bunch radishes
1/4 C salt
1 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid
1 Tbsp soy sauce substitute
1 Tbsp sesame oil substitute
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1 green onion, green parts only
- Wash and cut all vegetables and keep separate. You can do yours however you’d like, but I sliced the cucumbers and radishes thinly, and julienned the carrots. Remember to keep them thin.
- Salt liberally and rub salt into vegetables.
- Let sit in salt overnight. Give them the occasional rubbing/mixing, and drain off excess liquids that have collected, if you can.
- Rinse off vegetables very well. I rinse them at least three times each and give the vegetables a firm massage and squeezing out, to remove as much salt and water as possible. Continue repeating this until they are slightly salty, but not unpalatable.
- Coat vegetables in about 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid each, or to taste. It should have a “pickled” taste, but not be too tart.
- Add sugar, soy sauce substitute and sesame oil substitute to the carrots and mix together very well, until sugar dissolves completely.
- Slice one green stem of green onion into very thin rings and set aside.
- Add garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne to radishes. Mix well, and add green onion slices in. Toss together.
- Present together on a dish, or separately. Chill until used. They will keep for a few days in the fridge.
