You can snack on them raw or make fries. And chewing on the hard stuff is good for your teeth.

    I like them. And radish.
    I'm going to ferment some now and see how it is.

      Radishes are excellent fermented. They smell really strong when they are fermented for some reason. Just be prepared for that.

      I'm the only one I know who likes radishes. I eat them raw. People think I'm weird.

    They're also not prone to pathogens meaning it's safe for them to be a staple crop unlike those morons and their stupid fricking potatoes.

    OH and they make underrated jack-o-lanterns as well.

            Brassica vegetables are truly a gift from God.

            Broccoli, Cabbage, and Brussels Sprouts are also included. (Kale is tolerated)

              God didn't do that! Humans did. Every single brassica we eat comes from wild mustard. Give credit where credit is due

                Ironically mustard has been kind of fundamental in the theory of evolution. It even has its own theory called the Triangle of U

          Swedes were the only thing my grandparents refused to eat as they had nothing else to eat during famine after WW2. The disgust for them.was quite common so they weren't served to the later generations. Nowadays you can get them again in hipster vegetable stores.

        sure but potatoes supplanted turnips and other staple root crops way before overeating was an issue

      Because theyre bland as shit and mealy and just fricking suck compared to potatoes or most other roots.

      Now this is an underrated veggie. Throw that in a a stew for a good variation on carrot-y flavor.

      I was afraid these would suck but they're awesome

      Peel, cut into 1/2" slices, then toss with salt+olive oil and roast until dark and crispy.
      Tastes like broccoli hearts crossed with a french fry

    Gonna hijack this thread with radishes.
    Peel them, slice them, little bit of salt.
    Perfect side dish.
