I have two large bunches of local radishes, but I don't care for them raw... unless there are more appealing ways of eating them raw?<br><br>
I want to eat the greens, but they wilted very fast in the fridge. We have them in a plastic bag there.<br><br>
I'm really quite desperate to get these in to my kids (and myself) but none of the recipes I've come across sound terribly appealing!<br><br>

You can cook them like baby red potatoes... steamed, boiled, fried, baked... cooking gets rid of most of the bite. They won't have the starchiness of potatoes, but they still taste good IMO.<br><br>
Raw, I like them with butter and salt (the fat from the butter helps temper the bite). Or I slice them thinly and toss them in vinegar for a quick pickled salad (if you let it sit overnight, it'll turn pink).

I've sliced them and sauteed them in butter with the greens before. It was good. I imagine you could add them to a stir-fry or something along those lines if you don't want to try them alone--then you could pick them out if you don't like them.

I like to slice them thin and salt them, let them sit for a while and then add sour cream.<br><br>
It makes a nice little salad, imo.

<div style="font-style:italic;">you can slice super thin and make butter and radish sandwiches (kinda like a cucumber tea sandwich)</div>

This is my FAVORITE!!! I also add a bit lemon zest and some of their chopped greens.

Yummm! This looks good. It reminds me of something similar I sometimes make w/ cilantro and red onion to top spicy tacos with. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup">

MIL makes a really yummy spread. She grates radishes and green onions and mixes it into farmers cheese with a little bit of sour cream (a little salt probably too). It's delicious on toast, or by the spoonful lol I had thought about making it with NT cream cheese instead of farmer's cheese but never got to it.
