Revering the Radish

I’ve rediscovered the radish and am using it in a myriad of ways. From roasted to shaved raw with a mandoline, my fave root vegetable this summer is also really good for you. Bon Appétit has some fantastic radish recipes as does Martha Stewart.  I found this article on storing after harvest and The Washington Post has a piece on winter radishes.

  • I’m obsessed with radishes this summer too. I’ve been roasting them a lot with shiseto peppers. Will take a look at some of your recipes. xo

  • Next time you are in town, Level in Annapolis does a Parmesan risotto with watermelon radishes…started ordering it a few years ago…so so good.

  • LOL I was just saying how useless I find radishes, guess I need to take another look!

  • Oh yes, radishes are having their moment

  • I love all varieties of radishes, especially the tricolor bunches! Hotness varies depending upon color. Martha Stewart literally invented a particular kitchen tool we use constantly – not mandoline, but it’s for finely grating rinds especially. That woman has left a beautiful legacy and proudly encouraged women back into a higher level of homemaking, the kitchen and the garden! Chicness by virtue of quality in all she does. I just adore her!

  • Tri-color are absolutely gorgeous. I am mesmerized at Whole Foods.

  • Paula – can you tell us what the Martha Stewart tool you use is? Name?

  • Ours is called ‘Microplane,’ and has a Registered Patent #5100506. Whether or not this is the particular model which Ms. Stewart designed, I do not know. But I am quite certain that she is brains behind the design. Approx. 12 ” long, 1 1/4″ wide, stainless steel. Makes grating a breeze! No knuckle scrapes, no shaved fingernails. Whether or not she invented this . . . it’s a good thing!
