RADISH

Spicy, crunchy globes of colour! The hotter the weather, the spicier they get.

VARIETIES

Cherry Belle

French Breakfast

Easter Egg Mix

Black (winter)

Watermelon (winter)

STORAGE

Separate the greens from roots and store in the fridge. Store the radishes in a bowl of water in the fridge to keep them extra crunchy. This makes snacking from the fridge a flash, and they should last up to 2 weeks this way. Change the water every few days.

Store the greens in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to 1 week.

COOKING TIPS

If you don’t like a spicy radish, roast them and them into soup, which sweetens them up considerably, or add more maple syrup or honey to your salad dressing.

Radish greens are hairy and coarse, but like nettles, that texture disappears when you cook them down into something warm.
