Has anyone tried the pickle recipe in Land of Plenty. I made it a few days ago (using only carrots), but the carrots came out waaaaaaaay too salty for my tastes. I guess I will halve the salt and try again.

Are there any other chinese or simply asian pickling recipes I should know about?

There's always the one from the Momofuku cookbook. However, when I tried it the pickles came out way too sweet for my palate. Guess one has to take a recipe and adapt it to taste.

I don't know the recipe, but Chinese pickles are often on the sweet side. Either that, or very spicy.

Yes, adapt.
