{CSA} The Best Way to Eat Radishes…

… is definitely raw, dipped in salt.

^^ The Best Way to Eat Radishes ^^

My dad taught me this little trick years ago, when we were picking radishes in my Grammie’s garden. We also picked fresh cucumbers, and dipped them raw, in salt, as well. So many of my best memories are of my times spent outside in the garden, or running around the farm at my Grammie’s or at my great aunt and uncle’s place (all of them lived – still live – on farms).

The reason I am eating radishes is because my CSA share this week had:

  • 1 bunch of radishes
  • 1 celeriac (I am really not a fan… I am making it in soup right now, which hopefully will hide the flavor.)
  • dried pop corn
  • 2 pounds of white potatoes
  • 2 garlic bulbs
  • 1 cabbage
  • 1 collard bunch
  • 1 parsley
  • 1 bunch of mizuna
  • 3 gourds for decoration that I did not take! I don’t need any more clutter, especially not clutter that might go moldy.
I have the cabbage, garlic, parsley, celeriac, plus some of last week’s veggies (beets and leeks – maybe that is all?) simmering in a soup pot right now. Need to use them up, and no better way to down your veggies than in a pureed soup. I’ll pop it all in the Vitamix in a few minutes, and if it’s good, I will write up the recipe.

How do YOU eat radishes?
