My Garden and Pickled Radishes

This year's garden is coming along nicely. We have 5 tomato plants, broccoli, lettuce, radishes, carrots, speckled butter beans, lady peas and bell peppers.
I planted my favorite variety of radishes, French Breakfast and this morning I set out to make pickled radishes. There were not as many ready to harvest as I expected, but I gathered enough and got to work.

I cleaned and cut the radishes, added them to small jars, and made my brine.

I got four beautiful small jars!
These radishes have a lot of great peppery flavor and I just love how the intense color of pickled radishes really dress up a salad plate. I can't wait to incorporate these into menus for upcoming client dinner parties.
