I've always loved radishes, and would raid my grandmothers garden as a kid. MY dad always grew them, but somehow I didn't find time raising 4 kids, now with this gift of some wonderful radishes, I plan to plant several different ones and see what happens. They really were a wonderful treat.

I planted them for the first time this year but with our drought, my garden isn't doing too well, except for the tomatos....geez, I bet I have 150 on the 'tree' right now.

I made them a long time ago like Robo said sliced and sauteed in butter with salt it was really good.Think of them as tiny hot turnips.
I wonder what a radish puree would be like as a kind of condiment for pork or something.

I've never tasted roasted radishes. Just turned on the oven despite the heat. I'm looking forward to trying them.

Thanks for the post!

I'm sure they would be good with just about anything except maybe chocolate ice cream I'm sll for trying them with pork or beef..Might be unique.

Thank you everyone, sauteeing a radish wouldn't have occurred to me in a million years. Love the idea of the puree too, that especially wouldn't have occurred to me. Bet it works well. Love them.

Hi Ellen,
isn't it nice getting new idea's for old favorites? That is one of the things that I love about this forum and the freinds who give and share here. I'm glad to see that you've found us. Hope to talk again soon.

Has anyone here used radish leaves in salads or soup?

I have a French Bistro cookbook that has a soup recipe that uses only the radish leaves. I'm thinking that if I grow some radishes in the garden this fall, I might try it, but was wondering if anyone else has used the leaves.

I've never tried it Breezy, but, my grandma used greens from just about anything she grew in her soups, I'd give it a try if it were me. Could be something that you'll love. If so, please post a ecipe and I'll try it as well.
