Radishes in Soups & Radish Pickle Update


Use your extra radishes for soups.  I am planning to dehydrate some here for just that reason.  My Farmer's Market neighbor told me this tip.  You could freeze them too, but she says they are great it soups.  One year I did this with my extra Kohlrabi.

Update on the Refrigerator Radish Pickles - Hot!  Joke-ster Hubby was the first to taste, and graciously gave me one, saying, "These are crunchy, but they're not hot."  

He lied.  They are hot.  

I guess the amount of "heat" they would have, will depend on the "heat" that your radishes already have too.

I do like the fact that they do last for up to 6 months in the fridge.  I can make several jars for salads, just eating, or what not.  Yum!

That jalapeno just may have helped the heat level on your radish pickles. I know when I put one in with carrots the carrots are much hotter than you'd expect. I'm trying to change my thinking about radishes as I've always just eaten them as a crunchy salad addition. Do you cook the greens? I've heard they're good.

Missy,
I have been researching recipes for the greens, but have not yet tried one.

Thanks for the update on how hot they are! :)
I have put radish greens in salads before, they add a little radish hot.
