Yes, you can cook radishes! Judging by the reactions I received at the market, this was a huge hit. Not bad considering it was being served right next to the Rhubarb Floats.
Luckily, I was able to get my hands on a few more small radish bundles at the end of the day, along with fresh Eggs from Wisdom's Natural Poultry, and baby braising greens from Aspen Moon Farms.
For this photo, I quickly prepared them for Breakfast! Two quick shots, and many nibbles later, I have to say, this is my new favorite way to serve and eat the humble radish.
On a Side note: To the Market Shopper who said " you make the strangest food, but it's all been really good, so I am willing to try this too.." Thank you, I think.
