EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Perk up your cheese plate or crudités platter with these crunchy, zesty pickled turnips or try them on a sandwich instead of cucumber pickles.”
3-4 small turnips (about 12 ounces), peeled and very thinly sliced
½ cup quartered and thinly sliced red onion
3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
1 cup white-wine vinegar
1 cup hot water
1 tablespoon sugar
10 whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon salt
¼- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1Layer turnips, onion and garlic in a quart jar (or similar 4-cup container) with a lid.
2Whisk vinegar, hot water, sugar, peppercorns, salt and crushed red pepper (if using) in a medium bowl until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Pour the mixture over the vegetables. Put the lid on and gently shake a few times to distribute the flavorings. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to develop.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
