pretty in pink!

These akakabu (red turnips? But they're pink??) are so pretty when you cut them.


Then you put them in vinegar and weigh them down:


and....


nothing much happens. But you wait a week or two and.....


Ok. Bad picture as it was dark when I took it but they are just the prettiest pink colour. Just makes you happy when you eat them.

Like eating a little bit of a rainbow.

And sometimes you just need that in winter.

Is akakabu beetroot?
but they don't look like beetroots...or maybe it's their variety.
I buy pickles made from white kabu at the local supermarket and hubby is always asking me to try and make it but I have no idea. What did you put in yours?

plesse as the word verification pleads!!
