  1. My two favorites sliced radishes on good bread with good butter, salt and pepper and braised radishes.

      I love fresh radish dipped in softened butter with a little bit of fleur de sel, I don't even need the bread;o)

    2. After you've had your flll of them fresh and raw, I'd roast them in the oven at 400 for about 10 minutes, drizzled first with melted butter and olive oil, sprinkled with only S and P. Or sprinkle with a bit of soy sauce, dark sesame oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds (and roast).

          They're incredible - usually I leave that type of dish for later in the season when I'm raw-radished out!

      1. Just eat them plain! I love fresh picked tortoise eats the greens, and my family eats them within an hour or two...the small ones are left whole. This is the best time of year, before they get woody and bitter.

        1. I like to dip them raw into sriracha sauce.

          1. Whatever you do, do not discard the radish leaves.

            You can make a lovely pesto out of them.
