I grew up with this stuff, Luo Bo Gan, preserved and dried turnips or radishes. They’re salty and crunchy, meant to be eaten in small amounts to accompany rice, congee, or noodles. Sometimes, they’re spicy, like this one, and can really give the pick-me-up to anything bland. I say this because this is how I save myself when I have to order noodle soup delivery (which is mediocre at best in our neighborhood but when we’re sick….)

preserved radishes

You can buy Luo Bo Gan in jars at Asian markets but I get my stash from my mom, who gets it from Taiwan.
