My garden just produced about 40 pounds of red radishes! ...what do you do with radishes? We mostly use them to keep the soil loose for their partner crop, carrots.

I pickled about 20 pounds of them and set the away; but, do any members have any other tried and tested radish recipes? I gave a few more pounds away, and some will go into salads, other than this, I'm stumped.

We also planted watermelon radishes, which should be ready in 20 days or so. So much prettier, I'll likely just eat them all raw as it's a small crop.

My wife slices and ferments them. We grow a 25 foot row of them growing with red orash and sweet potatos. We have another 25 feet of Daikon radish and Bok Choy.

Our red radishes are a french heirloom variety as an fyi

Yum! I love Daikon, but we don't seem to have the right soil for it. (Nova Scotia)

Does she ferment them like you would a sauerkraut? Or a kimchi? That sounds delicious. We grow just enough cabbage each year to stock up on sauerkraut.

I love radish. Especially the hot ones with a little kick.

As I found out when I was giving them away...most people share your hatred of radishes.

What a gigantic crop!Well played!
Get them pickled in jars of apple cider vinegar if you have too many to eat-for long term storage..

Make salads of gherkins,tomatoes,radishes and melons with olive oil,big dash of tabasco and balsamic vinegar dressing,-sounds mad,but it really works(for me at least).That is one of my own inventions which is a staple of mine in the summer.
Give it a try-I have a few people addicted to it.

I call it "fallout salad."
I invented it in 2013.

Yes she does. My wife ferments just about anything...the fermented radishes take on a almost garlicky flavor...tasted really good with capers. We are in Ohio little longer season here we also have a lot of lime, perhaps that plays into things. a reply to: Atsbhct

This sounds like the tangiest salad of life. I don't know what it is about balsamic vinegar, but it just does not agree with me. I'll try it and swap for apple cider!

I love melon+feta+olive salads. Mmm.

Apple cider vinger works a treat if you aren't a fan of balsamic.
The melons I use are cantaloupe rather than water melon.

Something about the sweetness and juicyness of the melon and the crunchy spicy radish really works in my fallout salad.
You can also add cucumber to the mix as well.

Give it a go,hopefully I will have another convert to my salad.
World domination one step closer.


BTW how much land did you use to get that massive amount of radishes?

Radish dip:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup finely chopped radishes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 small head red cabbage, optional
Assorted fresh vegetables or crackers


In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth; stir in the radishes, onion, parsley and seasoned salt. Chill for at least 1 hour.

I love radishes!

I'm definitely cooking up a modified fall out salad tomorrow for lunch.

We used a row about 30' long and 3 feet across.

I've enjoyed radish roasted in the oven along with whatever meat we were eating. Sliced them in half. It softened them and mellowed the flavor a bit. It's not something we do all the time, but with a large crop of them it is something different. Spatchcock a chicken and throw some carrot, onion, and radish in the mix.

I also think it would be good in kimchi as others mentioned. We've experimented with a number of things in kimchi, even carrots, and it's always good.

Fantastic,Hope you enjoy it!
Please report back.

30' x 3 would probably get me approx 5-10 pounds in Wales..
You must have great weather conditions.
Well done,again!

It's likely because we let them get too big!

I love radishes. I love them raw on a platter with salt, love them in potato salad, heaps so its crunchy. ie. use little nugget new potatoes, keep the skins on. Cook them. Cook eggs. Throw in tons of radishes, celery, green onion. Dash of mustard, heaps of mayo, so homemade is best, and seasalt. Lots of fresh ground pepper. Wonderful.

I wouldn't want to grow so much I'd see them wasted.

Ahahahaha! I've been called many things in my life, but a radish racist? LOL That cracked me up!

You want to see people make weird faces, give someone a radish if they've never tried it before!
