Pickled Radish Korean Style

This  pickled radish is a perfect condiment to anything fried or  grilled, I've realised. Goes perfectly well with my KFC Recipe.

In a bowl, dissolve 200 g of white sugar, a tbsp. of salt in 1 cup or water and a cup of rice vinegar. 

Stir until sugar and salt is completely dissolved. 

Wash and peel about 600 g of radish.  A Korean daikon will be perfect for this recipe but any radish will do. Cut into  1 cm cubes. You're eating it so it doesn't have to be perfect!

Transfer cubed radish into your pickling solution. Cover and let it set overnight. 

Transfer into mason close jar and refrigerate for 2-3 days before serving. The Radish is super crunchy  and  the sour , sweetish sauce is just addicting.

Exploring Adelaide: Park 2

We spent a week in Adelaide before travelling to the East of Australia, home to Great Barrier Reef. Our stay in the south of Australia was pretty laid back and relaxing. My aunt did considered our very long journey  from Germany and ensured our total recovery from Jet lag so we are fit and running for the rest of our Australian holiday  . She provided us sufficient rest each day, cook us delicious ,homemade meals before  exploring the city.

 Weather was getting crappy on our 7th day, it was pouring so we stay until lunch time at home. After a delicious spread of seafoods, we went off and look for some indoor places. We went to covered markets and old shops. We did not stay long since the guys look bored and almost unable to hold back their eyes from rolling at out over enthusiasm for  kitchen wares, potteries and crystals .  I still don't understand what up with men and shopping. Sigh.

When it finally stopped pouring, we went to the Botanic Garden to breath some fresh air . FF and Joe looked so relieved. Lol. Anyway, Adelaide has a number parks and gardens to visit and this is just one of them . I always check out for Botanical Gardens every time we visit a new place and generally love  leisure walks in greeneries. The clean smell of grass and old trees simply make me forgot about petty things like taxes, bills , deepening wrinkles and tightening pants. 

Just like the rest of the city,  Adelaide Botanic Garden is immaculately clean and is well maintained.

We saw check out interesting architecture and sculptures .

Walk through  topiary arches.

 Lily ponds,

old, gigantic trees,

Bamboo forrest,

And simply feast our eyes on all things green and growing.

Then we came across this tranquil pond, with trees showing  the touch of Autumn.

And I can't simply help it but play with the fallen leaves. 

Finally, the sun is starting to set when we made of way to  Glenelg

Watch in astonishment as the darkening sky turned into pinkish- purplish hue. 

We spent the rest of the evening watching the sky , mesmerised. 

The sun finally set, slowing engulfing the sky into darkness. The city lights up and y is once again bursting with activities. Restaurants and pubs starts to get busy , inviting by passers.

Joe, brought us to his favourite steak house,  Hogsbreath Cafe. We feasted on 18 hour slow- cooked, butter-tender prime rib steaks, delicious ribs,  tasty sides and  beautiful local wines. Although we are excited to explore other sides of Australia, FF and I were sad to leave.
