Questions ... for the audience (if i still have one)

Any good recipes involving radishes? I have a bunch from the garden and I don't like to eat them raw. I plant them every year and then I end up feeding them to the dogs. I was thinking there might be some sort of sauce/dip/marinade that I could make.

Anyone have a recommendation of a good "Diabetes Diet" book and/or cookbook?


  1. We have a farm share and there are tons of radishes right now, so they just sent out this recipe:

    baked radishes

    1/2 lb radishes, trimmed
    1 Tbsp honey
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 tsp cinnamon

    1. Steam radishes 5 mins.
    2. Drain and arrange in shallow baking dish.
    3. Combine honey, butter and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Warm and stir until butter is melted.
    4. Pour over radishes. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees until tender, about 30 mins.
    Makes 4 servings.

    I haven't tried it, but it sounds good!

  2. Anyway, like I was sayin', radish is the fruit of the garden. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, radish-kabobs, radish creole, radish gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple radish, lemon radish, coconut radish, pepper radish, radish soup, radish stew, radish salad, radish and potatoes, radish burger, radish sandwich. That- that's about it.
