2014 CSA: Week 4

Something new appeared in my fourth week's CSA share from the Colvin Family Farm: RAT TAIL RADISH!

I've never seen nor heard of this type of radish before, but as soon as I got home and washed off the rat tail radish, I popped a pod in my mouth and ate it up. It had the same crunch of a radish but with more of a peppery/mustardy spice that reminded me of the kick from arugula. Obviously the rat tail radish would go great in salad, but I'm thinking that I could pickle these and incorporate them into an Asian style dish. I have much experimenting to do, and I'm excited!

Other things in the box from week four:

  • Collard greens
  • Broccoli
  • Summer squash
  • Green beans
  • Sweet onions
  • Curly kale
  • Lettuce

Can't wait to cook with the rat tail radish... If I don't eat them all raw first.
