I’m out of the closet! Yes I ready admit I love root vegetables. All, well almost most all of them. Beets, radishes, turnips, carrots. Potato’s in all of it’s colors, shapes, sizes and colors. Whether that potato be Irish, Yukon, Russian, Polish or if it’s a sweet potato or even a Yam.
Don’t pass up or ignore the ugly looking lesser known and eaten, Jerusalem Artichoke (a member of the sunflower family).
Who could go through life without Garlic, Onions in all it’s different varieties. White, yellow, and red ones. Scallions, small green onions and chives. No salad or pasta sauce is complete without the addition of one or more of these onion family members.
Spinach gets all the good press, but, young tender beet and turnip greens are colorful, tasty as well as being a healthy food. Every part of these root vegetables are eatable, tops and roots. Raw, pickled or cooked they taste great.
Radishes have a undeserved bad reputation. Pulled and served, young radishes are tender and tasteful. Harvest radishes while still young, small and tender. “before’ they become tough, woody, or developing a hot flavor. In a salad radishes are tasty, colorful and if you are a calorie counter, radishes 🙂 Grin have almost no calories or other real food value. So eat all you want and no need to watch your waste line.
Eat radishes fresh from your garden. Radishes do not store well and should never be stored by canning or freezing.
Healthy good tasting foods fresh from your garden to your table.
