  • 1 bunch salad turnips, washed and sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 3 thin slices of ginger


Place turnip slices in a small bowl and toss with the salt. Let rest until there is a pool of liquid on the bottom of the bowl, about 30 minutes.

Drain turnips of the salty water and pack into a pint-sized mason jar. Add vinegar, sugar, pepper and ginger slices. Apply a watertight lid and shake to combine.

Place pickled turnips in the fridge and chill before eating. Pickles can be eaten within an hour of being made and will keep for at least a week or more.
