And NOW it’s summer

Our first CSA bag of the season came today!

Like last year, the first bag is on the small side, but it was still very fun to unpack. They included a bag of lavender – I’m torn whether to try some of the lavender recipes that they included or just dry it and make more of the great hot/cold bags with it. The strawberries and cherries are great, we have tons of apriums (one of the reasons we chose this CSA over others is that they grow a lot of stone fruit and hybrids), and we pretty much finished the lemon basil last night. (Yum.)

A question for you: do you have any recipes/strategies for radishes? They included a pesto recipe for the greens which looks like the plan for tonight, but I’m at a bit of a loss when it comes to the radish itself.

  1. if you still have the radishes (or get any more this summer) a friend of mine made this recipe a few weeks ago which was a great use of radishes. enjoy!

    Meyer lemons (using regular lemons is fine)
    Good olive oil
    Radishes sliced thin
    Fennel sliced thin
    Mint coarsely chopped
    Salt to taste
    I eyeball the amounts- one fennel bulb to about one bunch of radish.
    Give it some time to sit in the fridge, mixed with the lemon juice, mint, and oil — it definitely tastes better with time!
