RECIPE: Dưa Món
4 Carrots, peeled with a slicer
1 Green Papaya, peeled, seeded
1 Daikon, peeled
4 cloves of Garlic, peeled, thinly sliced
2 1/2 cups Sugar
2 1/2 cups good Fish Sauce such as Three Crabs Viet Huong brand
A Glass Jar with Lid
Bring a pot of water to boil. Place dried vegetables in the pot and turn of the heat. Let it sit for a few minutes then drain, rinse with cold water and pat dry. This step is optional. I didn't want to wait for a week to taste it as it takes time to absort the liquid and unshrink. Soaking it in hot water would help to unshrink it and it will absord faster.
