Hubby first started his cooked radishes with the red ones. Most of the recipes like the one I linked are done with large red radishes.

As I said, the cooking process takes away a lot of the expected flavor -- some people complain that they are too bland.

I haven't tried them whole in soup yet, still a little leery of any excessive cast off radish flavor.

I have seen posts from people happy to have another use for their radishes, and that the cooked radishes can then be frozen. I haven't specifically looked for anyone who is freezing fresh radishes for cooking later, but there most be some body!

Radish Cooking Report Part 2:

Made another corned beef last night, hubby asked where's the radish? Oops -- so just did another batch. It took about 30 minutes for the "potato" sized chunks of daikon to cook. I'd say the root was 3-4" in diameter, I cut it in 1" slices then into fourths.

I'd say that the radish sucks up the salt from the corned beef cooking liquid even more than potatoes! Hubby will like them, a bit too much salt for me, but otherwise the flavor was bland and not radish-y.

I also tried two "hash" tests, I cut quite a bit into half inch cubes and split them into two batches. One I par cooked first for about 10-15 minutes (again using the corned beef broth because it was handy), the other I tried raw. Because of the low starch/sugar I couldn't get either of them to brown even with a high heat and a lot of oil, but the texture and taste were fine on the pre-cooked ones. Again, they soak up flavor well, I had some Montreal Seasoning in the mix.

The raw ones I got a bit distracted by my sewing and burned to a nasty crisp on the one side, while still being defiantly crispy raw on the other! Note to self: You are not so good at multi-tasking with a hot burner in the mix... I think it would be easier to just cube and precook than attempt doing them raw again, but I'm sure the hubby will do a try from fresh.

I just watched Off Grid with Doug and Stacy on YouTube. She was cooking radishes in the oven and saying donít throw out the greens! It was under the title...the fastest growing super food. Who knew you can eat radish greens!🥗

Oh I like a bread, butter, and sliced radish sandwich. A few weeks ago I mentioned this to my husband and he had never heard of it!
