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.
One thought on “And NOW it’s summer”
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!
