Tsukemono: Japanese Pickles

Tsukemono (pronounced: tsoo-kay-moh-noh) are hard to miss when you’re in Japan.  Tsukemono basically means “pickled thing” so this can include radish, cucumber, napa cabbage, ginger, plum, turnip, and a type of onion called rakkyozuke.  It is often a side dish and eaten with rice.  I love the colors of Japanese pickles, and together with grilled fish, there’s nothing better!
