Our neighbor, (the same 'gentleman farmer' that I wrote this post about last year) was kind enough to bring over some of his first of the season's produce yesterday. It was a robust bunch of radishes ~ I love homegrown radishes! For some reason I have not had any luck growing them here, luckily for us, we now know someone who does. :)
I decided to enjoy the radishes simply, with just a sprinkle of some of the ~ Spanish rosemary infused gourmet sea salt ~ that my friend, Anne, sent me for Christmas. If you've never tried flavored sea salt, I HIGHLY recommend it! (The trio of flavored sea salts she sent to me came from a lovely shop called the ~ Sea Salt Cottage. Check out their eShop tab to see their current flavored gourmet sea salt selection ~ it is amazing stuff!! I adore my wood smoked flavor, it smells and tastes divine!)
After I had my fill of radishes, I kept thinking the radish greens just looked too healthy and vibrant to let them go to waste. So, I searched the web and discovered you can eat radish leaves! I never knew that...but thinking of how sorry looking the radish greens are in the market, it's not surprising that I'd never thought to eat them before. Now I know ~ homegrown and fresh is the only way to go with radish greens!
