Pickled Radishes

I got tired of waiting for my radishes to grow.  So I picked up a quart of them at the farmers market today. 

I loved the pickled radishes that my mom made when I was a kid.  She used a simple recipe of 1 cup. water, 1 cup vinegar, salt and pepper. 

I thought I'd try fermenting them to see what happens.  I've never done this before, so I don't know how it'll turn out. 

I sliced the radishes as evenly as I could and packed them into a jar.  I added a 3.6% salt-water brine until they were covered.  Then I put the lid and airlock on.  I'm going to leave the jar in a dark corner of the counter for 7 days.  I'll post the results then.
