● How to make Japanese pickled mustard greens (pickled takana) at home
① Wash mustard greens and dry for 1-2 days. (Hanging it on a clothesline is easy.)
② Make saturated salt water. Pour water into a container (a plastic bottle or a bottle-shaped Tupperware is good) and add salt until it no longer dissolves.
③ Fill the pickle container with mustard greens. Place some crushed chili peppers in between. Add saturated salt water to the extent that the mustard greens are half submerged, and put a weight.
④ Leave it for a day and when the water rises, throw the water away. Repeat this for 2-3 days. You can eat it when the mustard greens are soft.
