I think you'll like it Blissful. And, try the cold version (or a variation thereof) of the link for cold radish soup I posted. As I recall, you make your own yogurt...and buttermilk? Let us know what you think of radish soup.

Interesting...
I was recently assigned an article on Minnesota hotdish, and never encountered radish soup during my research. Asian style, soups and stews with daikon radish is routine for me. I had stored away in my head how I might cook and marry little red radishes with radicchio, but have yet to try anything. I can't yet seem to acquire a taste for cooking other Asian veggies like cucumber and lettuce, but continue to occasionally try.

This is admittedly a tame idea, but it's good. Finely grate a tablespoon of raw radish. Finish a soup serving with a dollop. It gives the soup a refreshing little peppery bite.

Are you going to start that Minnesota hotdish thread again?!! (I think it was under Hamburger Casserole)

Well I will definitely look at them differently next time I am in the grocery store!

I'm thinking the next batch I'll make will have "radish curls" on top for garnish to maintain the peppery taste of the radish. Stretch your culinary tastes and make a small batch. You'll be surprised. I am also thinking French tarragon instead of the lavender next time. I've got a bunch of different radish varieties planted--can hardly wait to combine them in soup.Radishes grow quickly, but what to do with them besides salads and garnishes?
point taken - in cooking, i'll try virtually anything once, but i don't have a fine assortment of home grown radishes like you do! do you make soup from kohlrabi as well?

Cooked radishes and cucumbers are now on my list to try.

If I can keep the DH from eating the kohlrabi, I do make a cold soup from that (similar to a cucumber cold soup). The next time I can keep him out of the kohlrabi and he leaves me with some for the week, I'll TNT the recipe and post it. I love kohlrabi raw. And, there isn't ever enough of it to try and figure out what else to do with it...unlike the radishes.
