My husband picked ALL the radishes yesterday. The right side of the sink is the really dirty ones straight from the garden dirt. The ones on the left are the washed ones. They are mostly green tops!
See, they were mostly greens. I found out today that you can eat the greens too. I found several pickled radish recipes, salads and a soup recipe for the greens.
However I can't deal with them today except wash and store them- I have company coming! I have to wash everything a second time as well because they're so very dirty. The best way to get all the dirt off, in my opinion since I don't have a sprayer, is to fill up the sink with cold water and let the radishes sit for 10-15 minutes, swirling them around a bit. All the dirt goes to the bottom.
Ok, well, time to scrub the incredibly hard to clean faux micro suede furniture- with baby soap and water! Ugh!
