Radishes

(Radishes)  This red-skinned radish is the most common variety.  They are eaten raw in salads or plain.  When thinly sliced, their red outer skin and white inner flesh add color to any salad or relish dish.  They have a relatively mild spicy taste.  Select radishes that are fresh and crisp and bright in color.  It is harder to detect imperfections in packaged radishes, but if they are firm to the touch and fresh and bright in appearance, they are usually quite good.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
