I was just inquiring as to whether or not anyone has seen Watermelon Radishes anywhere recently (in Toronto). I live a ways outside the city and have to make a pretty lengthy drive each time I want to source an ingredient, so I try and make sure a certain place actually has them currently before I make the trek.
Harvest Wagon perhaps? Anywhere at SLM? Elsewhere? Inquiring minds need to know! ;)
Much thanks in advance for any help.
I like them quick pickled (japanese style; mirin, yuzu, rice wine vinegar); thinkly sliced on a mandoline and used as a crust for various white fish (ie. to resemble scales on the fish); sliced thinly raw in a salad; best of all: served cut in half alongside breakfast radishes and regular radishes, sprinkled with coarse salt as part of a simple crudite; with a nice bagna cauda; with almost any sashimi dish as a complimentary element to the plate (opposed to wasabi for that peppery element); and in a chilled radish and watermelon soup.
... amongst other things. I also found them at Harvest Wagon, by the way.
