How to Choose
The tops should be bright green and not wilted. The bulbs should be smooth, free from cracks and nicks and brightly colored. Squeeze them to make sure they are not hollow or soft.


How to Prepare
Wash thoroughly. Chop or slice and add to a salad, cut into matchsticks and use as a topping for tacos, slice thinly and sauté in a stir-fry, toss whole ones in the pan during the last 20 minutes of a roast, or simply eat raw with Kosher salt. Anyway you use it, radishes are sure to add a little zest to any dish.


How to Store
Although the tops are edible, remove the radish greens before storing - they speed up spoilage. Place the radishes in an open plastic bag in the vegetable crisper of the refrigerator and they will keep for up to ten days. To regain crispness: If the radishes have gone limp, soak them in a bowl of ice water for 5 to 10 minutes and they will crisp right up.
