Pickled mustard tuber, known as zhacai in Chinese, is a household dish made of stems of mustard in China. After being plucked and thickly cut into equal sized slices, the stems are aired for a day to be dried. Then the stems are put into a pickling jar with salt for about ten days. When the stems are well-pickled, they will be transferred into sealed pots with paprika and sugar, and zhacai is ready for foodies. Although inconspicuous and small, Zhacai is an important embellishment in home cooking.
