This year we had a real bumper crop of extra radishes and so I researched to find out other ways to use them rather then just adding them to salads. By quartering and roasting them with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and your favorite herbs, they are a tasty, mild (roasting removes all the heat of the radish) plus a little crunchy, and moist. They were a surprise even to me, but enjoyed by all!
To clean them, fill your sink or a large bowl with water. Dump the acorns in and soak them, gently swirling them in the water to remove dirt and insects. If they are particularly dirty, you can gently scrub them with a soft brush.
