recipes for spicy radishes?

Cascade, VA(Zone 7a)

Just curious if anyone knows of a recipe out there that actually makes use of radishes that have gotten spicy hot? I planted the seed for these guys around the end of march, and even beyond the estimated maturity date, they are comparable to maybe my fingernails, but some of them are like little fireballs! which tells me how the rest of the planting will most likely be. So wondering how to take advantage of this, i do plan on allowing some to go to seed though.

These are the Easter Egg radish mix by the way

I love them ... and I normally do not like radishes.
I did pickled the most spicy radishes last year and they end up being amazing with this recipe!
Happy gardening !

sounds great, thanks so much. This was actually my first time ever for growing radishes, but i still got better results than i thought i would have, even if they are tiny, lol. im thinking being so small, they could be pickled whole

I grew some Daikon radishes, perhaps planting at the wrong time, and they bolted enthusiastically while the roots were just little fuzzballs. The mildly spicy radish [u]seed pods[/u] were tasty, though!

The nicest thing is that I let some pods "dry on the vine", and now I have volunteer radishes coming up in unimproved soil that I can't push a shovel into, and needs to be moistened to break it up with a pick.

Pretty radish flowers, and real Tough Guy radishes trying to push their way through clay and rocks, sometimes backing out of their holes when they lose the struggle.
