Radiant Watermelon Radish

If you have never seen watermelon radishes before, you might think that they aren’t real. How mother nature managed to make this combo of radiant pink and green colors appear in a radish… a real mystery! Festive and mild, this radish will truly make your crudités platter pop.

Super Quick Pickle:
Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice your watermelon radishes crosswise into discs, then stack the discs and slice them into thin strips. Place strips in a small bowl, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar, and a splash of vinegar. Toss to coat, then set aside. After 15 minutes, the radish strips should have released some liquid and should be somewhat limp. Toss again, then transfer to a serving bowl, leaving any remaining liquid behind.

For Storage:
Seal them in a plastic bag and these babies can last for a couple weeks without a problem!

Peas and Greens Love

Field GoodsOut of the BagLeave a Comment

While every grocery store stocks frozen peas, and some even offer a fresh option, our increasingly homogenized food system relegates the vine’s tender shoots, tendrils, and leaves to the trash heap. Big mistake. The pea greens this week are grown organically by Letterbox Farm in Hudson, New York. These plants were cultivated in a greenhouse, so they weren’t totally exposed to the elements.

Pea shoots impart a delicate, grassy, pea-like flavor to salads and sandwiches. They also make for a fresh take on pesto. Or sauté with garlic and olive oil, and serve in place of the usual spinach side. (Just be aware that pea greens cook down in volume by as much as 90 percent.) Packed with folic acid and Vitamins A and C, pea greens are good for you—and the planet.
