2 lbs Carrots https://amzn.to/2KM4LLZ
1/4 cup sea salt https://amzn.to/2Db2KEJ
1 cup apple cider vinegar https://amzn.to/2rg6sKL
1 cup monk fruit sweetener https://amzn.to/2Oev3Zu
2 cups warm water https://amzn.to/2QL8nle
Using a Mandoline, grate our radish and carrots into very thin 2-inch length size pieces.
Mix about a quarter cup of sea salt into our radishes and carrots. Let sit for about 10 to 15 minutes. This will draw out most of the liquid that is in our vegetables making them more bendable. Which, is the way we want them.
After about 10 to 15 minutes, wash out radish and carrots to clean off most of the salt and put it into a sizable jar or container.
To make our brine we will add in apple cider vinegar, monk fruit sweetener, and warm water into a mixing bowl. Mix well to dissolve the monk fruit sweetener. You can also add more salt in this step if you want it saltier.
Poor our brine solution into our container with our vegetables. Let sit for at least 1 day. Preferably, over 3 days. Serve and enjoy.
