The beds in my veg patch are four metres wide. Which is quite big. So each row of vegetables is also four metres long. Which is quite long. Especially when it comes to radishes. One row of radishes is probably 150 radishes. Which is plenty. Half rows are not an option (the feng shui of it’s all wrong), so the result is a long neat row and a fairly sizable radish glut. Which is fun.
I like radishes dipped in butter and salt then left to set in the fridge – always a winner at canapé parties. I also like them roasted, stay with me, it’s delicious, with feta and balsamic or mixed into a bulgur wheat salad. And yonks and yonks ago when I was first writing recipes I made a radish and cucumber salad which I now revisit to tart up and turn into a crisp and colourful fresh spring roll for lunch.
