The radishes themselves were pithy and a bit woody, but I wanted to try a fermented radish pickle, so that became the fate of the stubborn radish crop. Unfortunately even fermenting the radishes did not help with those stubborn radishes!
As for the greens, I had two different processes in mind, with one being a pesto. Let's start with the pesto, it is so easy and so delicious.
I am a true pesto fan. I have made pesto with so many different herbs and green vegetables. Pesto makes a wonderful spread for sandwiches and burgers. Toss any cooked vegetable in pesto before serving for a delicious change of pace. Pesto and some sour cream in your baked potato, is a whole new game! Plus in the colder months, opening a jar of pesto makes any day a brighter day!
I used some of this pesto in my turkey sandwich, today at lunch. Instead of mayo, which I love, I used some Radish Top Pesto. Simply delicious, so watch out burgers, there is a change coming......
Radish Top Pesto
by the seat of my pants!
Radish tops, cleaned with all tough stems removed
1 t garlic salt
1/3 - 1/2 c Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/4 - 1/3 c olive oil
Fill your processor bowl with the greens, packing lightly.
Add salt and cheese.
Slowly add oil while at the same time using an on and off pulse method to mix and chop the ingredients. Continue to pulse, until a proper consistency is achieved.
Spoon into storage jars, label and freeze.
