CSA Basket 25

Yes, I skipped posting about our previous two baskets. Life gets busy. But to make it up to you, this post contains not one but THREE pictures. Why? Because the baskets this week were BEAUTIFUL, a vision in red and green and ranunculuses (or is that ranunculi?). This week's basket contained: Ranunculus Flowers, Iceberg Lettuce, Romaine Lettuce, Cilantro, Turnips, Carrots, Potatoes, Beets, Mixed Radishes, Long Radishes, Navel Oranges, Fuji Apples, Kale, Kohlrabi, Kiwi, Strawberries, and Pears.

These are the baskets all lined up under the big ficus tree outside the Fullerton Arboretum waiting to be picked up.
Any radish recipes would be greatly appreciated.

According to my CSA folks, the long radishes are called French Breakfast Radishes. Apparently, the French eat radishes for breakfast. They dip them in softened salted butter. I haven't tried that, but it's supposed to be tasty.

I'm very jealous of the ranunculus. They are one of my favorite flowers.

I was able to pick up some spinach and kale from my CSA people this week - they were clearing the field for planting. I can not wait until the produce starts rolling in! Come on spring.

The new issue of Martha Stewart Living has lots of recipes with radishes - mostly salads and sandwiches.

I'm going to try a French Breakfast Radish for breakfast tomorrow. Not sure how it will complement my granola and yogurt.

Oddly, my friend Bridget just passed on her latest Martha Stewart Living magazine to me. It is indeed full of radish recipes. What a coincidence!

I am a big fan of ranunculus, too.

Yay, Spring!
