I always try to plant something different each year. This year I did some oriental vegetables. I got a surprise (fall) bumper crop of these radishes. I planted in the spring and they bolted fast so I let them go to seed. Well, some of the seeds landed here and there and came up this fall.

I need something to do with all these long white raddish things. How do you fix these? I'm looking for recipes someone has actually made and enjoyed.

I do like the the green tops cooked. I understand you can eat the green tops raw added in salads.
I sauteed some red onion and garlic first and then added only the green tops chopped up and cooked those down stirring almost constantly. This was very good. I even tried them on a 93 year old and she liked them. When you cook the tops they seem to lose the spicey hot taste they have when raw.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
