How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except for the jicama and shiso with 2 cups of water and bring to a simmer over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Cool until lukewarm.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, combine the jicama and shiso with the brine. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour and serve, or transfer to the refrigerator until ready 
to serve.

Make Ahead

The pickles can be refrigerated in the brine for 3 days.
