Cooking Basics

Daikon radish - thickly peeling the skin

Thickly peel the skin of daikon radish to remove the fibrous portion that runs vertically near the skin and will become stringy when cooked. It will depend on each daikon radish, but usually peeling off 3 to 4 mm (0.2 in.) thick skin is recommended. The peeled skin can be used for "kinpira", a Japanese sauteed and simmered dish flavored with soy sauce, mirin and sugar.

Daikon radish - chateau cut

For simmered dishes such as broiled daikon or oden (a Japanese dish containing all kinds of ingredients cooked in broth and seasoned with soy sauce), the corners should be chamfered to prevent them from splitting. The aim is to take a knife and trim off the straight edges.
