Recipes for your Home Grown Radishes

Got a glut of home grown radishes? Here’s what you can do with them! The radish is usually treated as a raw salad vegetable whether it is red or white, is spherical, olive-shaped or tapering. Radishes for this purpose are best washed well and then chilled in iced water until serving time. However there’s so much more you could do with these little culinary taste bombs!

They may be sliced into a salad or left whole, but are delicious eaten on their own with fresh butter and sea salt.
