Momofuku Pickled Turnips

Pickled Turnips from Momofuku in NYC:

NGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound turnips, peeled and sliced paper thin
  • 2 (4-inch-by-2-1/2-inch) pieces kombu
  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place the turnips and kombu in a 1-quart jar, leaving at least 1/2 inch of room at the top of the jar.
  2. Make the brine: Place the vinegar, sugar, water, and salt in a small saucepan, whisk to dissolve the sugar and salt, and bring to a rapid simmer.
  3. Immediately pour the brine over the turnips, making sure to cover them completely but leaving 1/4 inch of room at the top of the jar. Let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  4. Cover the jar with a tightfitting lid. Shake the jar or turn it upside down to evenly distribute the brine, then place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 day and preferably 1 week before using. (The pickled turnips can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.)
