Radish is in season and it is only 29 cents a lb, I had to bring a few back to make dried radish/Cai Poh bee! My sun-dried radish is ready in just under two good sunny days!
4-5 lb/ 2200-2500 gm of Radish/Daikon
2-2.5 tbsp of sea salt
4-5 磅/2200-2500 克 萝卜
2-2.5 大勺 海盐/食盐
1. Clean and peel the radishes, shred into thin strips using a shredder.
2. Sprinkled the salt and mix well, let it sit for about 5 minutes.
3. Squeeze excess water out of radishes and spread it out over baking sheet/bamboo colander.
4. Place it under sunny spot and sun dry it for 1-2 days or until it is dry. Bring the radishes indoor at night if it takes longer than 1 day to dry.
I am planning to use these babies for my Chinese Steamed cake later. You can also use it to make stewed pork belly.
