What the Hell is a Black Radish

Processed with MOLDIV

Walking through the farmer’s market, my eyes zeroed in on the black radishes. Not one to have food remorse, I tossed one in my basket.  That evening my spouse spotted it on the counter and asked me what it was. I replied a black radish. He inquired how I was planning to eat it. I laughed and said. “like any other radish- with hummus.” (What do you do with your radishes?) As it was near dinner time, we incorporated it into our charcuterie platter.

Processed with MOLDIV

Verdict: I would not buy this again. The charcoal-colored skin is tough (read inedible). We quickly learned this after cutting off a slice and found ourselves hysterically chewing forever. The creamy white flesh is starchy and reminds me of a raw potato. Has anyone else tried this?

    This is the second exposure to Black Radishes, I read the book with my daughter. The root veggie was used to bribe German soldiers in the story. Since then and until now I had never heard of them. Thank you for the review, I’ll not be seeking them out anytime soon.

    I love black radish, for it is very useful to make a syrup to treat cough. See a link about it here

    I also use it to make salat from grated black radish and apples. 🙂
    Thank you for your post!
