So why do we love radishes?
Maybe because you can eat everything, including the greens, and do so much with them. Plus, they’re so beautiful too!
This time of year radishes are plentiful from our participating farmers.
So many varieties too:
- Watermelon Radish. Hardly the prettiest on the outside, But, stunning inside.
- Sparkler Radish
- French Breakfast Radish.
- Daikon White Radish.
- Malaga Radish.
- White Hailstone Radish
They’re also rich in minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron and manganese. This heavy vitamin and mineral load means that radishes are indicated to combat a number of serious diseases, such as cancer and diabetes, and may also help with minor ailments such as coughs and colds.
We found a great Recipe: (The important stuff.)
We used radishes from Wills Eden Farm and The Moon Farm as well as spring onions and garlic from The Moon Farm. We included the greens too.
Here is a link to the recipe. Enjoy!
