Radishes, while more study than other more leafy crops, are tender and get soft when they start to loose moisture. Cooling slows this process, so they keep best in the fridge in a covered container with the greens removed. You can even add some water to the container if you want to keep them extra crisp. The greens are delicious when cooked. Use the bulbs within 1 week, the greens within 2-3 days.
The way we prefer to prepare radishes, two ways!
It's that easy to enjoy radishes! Some people are hesitant to try them because of a childhood experience or not having them prepared well, and they miss out on all the possibilities and benefits that this early and late season crop brings. We hope this helps you rediscover radish as a welcome addition to your dish!
