NYC CSA Challenge #3- Radish questions

Sarah McC Jul 10, 2006 02:46 AM

I am realizing that I may not have the stamina to track this CSA things for 23 weeks, at least not without boring everyone. However, I still have lots of questions.

-How to store the radishes (I've had them in the high humidity bin of my fridge, and they're getting kind of soft)?
-What to do with radish greens?

    You should store them in a plastic bag with a damp paper towel.
    Oh...and make sure you take the tops off first, or they pull out water from the roots (radish).
    The greens are very much like turnip greens...blanch them and sautee with olive oil and garlic. Either serve alone with a squeeze of lemon, or serve in pasta with parmesan.

      Well, no wonder.
      The greens are still attached to the radises, and things are not looking good. I'll know for next week, since I am SURE we will be getting radishes for a while.
