What To Do With All Those Radishes?!

It's that time of year, when the veggie garden finally starts producing, and you are faced with the wonderful yet challenging task of figuring out to do with all that beautiful produce. 

For us up here on the mountain top, right now the garden is giving us lettuce like mad, and radishes up the kazoo!

What do I do with all those radishes?

Honestly, I've never been a huge fan....but my sweetie likes them, so we plant them every year. 


Yesterday evening, when my sweetie was heading over to my house with another basket of lettuce and radishes out of his garden, I started searching for new ways to prepare them. 

Because, there are only so many salads you can eat, am I right? 

I found some really interesting looking dishes, and I'm super excited to try them out!

If you are also looking for a new way to prepare radishes, all the recipes can be found by clicking the link at the bottom of each photo.

Or do you keep it simple, sliced and salted?

  1. I wasn't a big fan of radishes either until I read the book, "A Homemade Life" by Molly Wizenburg. She talked about putting thinly sliced and salted radishes on crusty bread with butter (like the tartines you shared) and I have been hooked on that ever since. Thanks for the other ideas to use radishes. I hope your summer is going well. I think of you every time the Catskills come into view when I am driving up the thruway :)

    1. Even though they are not a favorite, I will always find ways to incorporate our home grown radishes into our menu since my sweetie loves them. I'm just glad there are a few options out there!

  4. I have never liked radishes, but they always seem to flourish in the garden, so I would have to eat them! I mean they were the literal fruits of my labor, how could I let them go to waste? Glad to see there are some creative ways to enjoy them. I may have to pop them back in the garden round up again!

    1. I have read great things about radishes on buttered bread....sounds a little bizarre but apparently it's life changing!

  5. I like radishes sliced and salted, but my favorite is a radish and cucumber sandwich with Dukes mayonnaise. Shall I send you my address so that you can send me some? Lol!

    1. Only if you'll send me some Duke's mayonnaise - we don't have that here, and I've read about it!! :)

    2. Send me your address to my email...

      I'm kidding about the radishes, but I'll send you some Dukes. It's so delicious.

  6. My radishes were a colossal failure this year but I am going to try again this Fall. Our wonky weather had most of them get woody so I only got 6 good ones out of 2 long rows.

    1. That's funny because this year has been our best radish harvest in years! The past few years were a total flop!

  7. We have not had any luck with radishes. I'm impressed with your bumper crop! We love them and they're so much better fresh than from the market. Miss Debbie has a good idea, a fall crop.
