Japanese Pickle

Besides having kimchi in my fridge all year round, occasionally, I do make a variety of other pickles. I enjoy pickling as much as eating them.

This version of pickle is elf’s favorite. Whenever he goes through a phase of pecking on his food like a bird, I will make a tubful of Japanese pickles.
It will work up an appetite for him.
It saves me the frustration of nagging him to finish his meal, cuz this pickle work miracles.

This pickle is crunchy & very appetizing…..

What U need:

  • 1 large Chinese cabbage
  • 1 med Carrot - shredded
  • 1 med Capsicum - sliced thinly

Pickling sauce:

  • 1 cup Vinegar
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ½ cup Mirin


  1. Wash & tear cabbage to bite size.
  2. Blench it with hot water briefly & soak in iced water for a few mins and drip dry.
  3. Prepare pickling sauce in a large flat container.
  4. Put cabbage, carrot, capsicum into pickling sauce & chill for 12 hrs.


Adjust the sweetness of the pickling sauce to your liking. More if you have sweet tooth, less if you are are not.
