Danmuji ( yellow pickled radish) is a very important ingredient for gimbap; I never make gimbap without it. It tastes sweet and sour and it’s crispy when you chew it.

How do I store this after I opened it?
Keep it in the fridge. It will last long time up to 3 months.
I remember about a year ago I moved to Omaha,Ne and we have a great Asian store. They have like 10 different brands of picked radish, so I bought a couple samplers to try, and ugh.
I mean no offense but pickled radish tastes like sour milk and gym socks. o.O its probably an aquired taste I’m sure, I have a Japanese friend who says the same thing about cheese and I love cheese.
Do you have a favorite Brand of dan moo ji?
Maangchi Could you one day show how to make Pickled Radish?
Yes please show how to make this!
I’m sorry I don’t know how to make this yellow radish pickles.
I found online recipes for it if you google for “Takuan recipe”. Some are quite simple and others quite involved. It looks like it is not that difficult. I am going to try it sometime.
Hej Maangchi! I absolutely love your cooking show, you are so cute! Anyway i’m a new yorker living in stockholm. I found your website because I was dying to make my own korean food and from the lack of korean food in stockholm. I even had my friend import me red pepper flakes from koreatown to make kimchi. I would like to know how to pickle my own daikon radish. i found it at asian store, and then read the label…to find a warning that said ” causes cancer in labratory animals”.
Anyway please let me know. Kimbap is not the same without it. thanks, gabi
my mom used to just use plain old pickles in our kimbap since there were no korean stores close by. it’s not the same but it’s close. it gives the crunch and the salty. maybe try a sweet pickle? or add sugar?
I want to ask you a question. I bought yellow pickled radish today and for some reason it wasn’t sweet and sour. It was a little salty at first then it was a little bitter. On the bottom of the package it said “Sushi Takuwan” and the brand was “Choripdong.” I’m not sure if I bought the wrong type of radish.
That’s what it is. If you want to make it sweet and sour, use sugar and vinegar.
HI maangchi my I bought yellow prickled radish 2 but it was sweet not salty how should it taste??
and what should i do???
It’s salty and sweet. Without using salt, they can’t make pickle.
no its not salty at all its kinda sweet how can i make it salty??
Hi! good evening. Just want to inquire if you know other brand of pickled radish?
You can keep danmuji in the refrigerator as long as you want. It’s already pickled, so it won’t go bad. But be sure to seal it air tightly.
Hi Maangchi! Love, love, love you! :o)
I always buy the large packages of daan moo ji and although we do eat it a lot I’m always scared it’s going to go bad. So, I would like to know how long the daan moo ji is good for once you’ve opened it?
Thank you so much for all your hard work! Komawoyo.
