There is always the local food bank or a commodities distribution center where you can give them to those who are hungry.
I take many of my excess crops there. Even not so perfect apples are appreciated here at mine by the people who receive them.
I even had some come help me pick last year.

That which I Will to happen in truth, I will put action behind to achieve and the Lord will help me if I ask IN BELIEF!

Same here about raw only. Mostly sliced in salads or cut to make flowers that open in ice water - always enjoyed making them more than eating them (which I guess is true of most garnishes)

I'm finding the idea of cooking radishes intriguing. In all my life, I've only had them raw, so this is a whole new idea for me!

I found a recipe for cream of radish soup - gonna try that next. I chopped some fine and added it to chicken soup yesterday - can't taste the radishy flavor, but I know its gotta be good for me!

Sauteed with garlic? I'm going to try that. I have yet to find a way to eat radishes that appeals to me. I plant to mark the location of slower-germinating seeds and nothing more... emoticon

I did find a recipe for pickled radishes - even gives directions for making little roses out of them before you pickle them. Its done that way in Japan, evidently. I'm loving the sauteed radishes with garlic - who knew I could get DH to eat radishes and actually LIKE them??

You're right . . . they are cute!

What possessed you is that they are cute and easy and grow so fast--who can resist?!

Sautee or bake with balsamic vinegar.

I shred them on salads.

Or try pickling. I'm sure you can Google some easy recipes with vinegar that will make it last for a month.

Try epicurious.com, put in your ingredients in the search box and it will give you some recipes.

Radishes store longer in the refrigerater if you can keep the humidity around 90%. So I would put them in a plastic zip-bag with a damp paper towel.

Radishes can be grown as both a spring and fall crop and their seeds stay viable for a few years. So if you want both red & white radishes you can plant just part of the pack in spring & more of it in the fall.

can you freeze them? Mine didn't grow. So I have to buy them. But I got a big bag and I'm going to try and freeze mine. I figure they will be fine in cooked stuff.

Please, Please watch and listen for motorcycles while your out and about!

I wish I had your radish problem. The tops on mine looked great, but the roots are pencil thin and I've never had a problem with the white radish until this year. I just pulled them and will mulch them into the garden.

There's not much one can do for a variance in radish preparation and consumption.

I don't know what possessed me to plant two packets of radish seeds - one white and one red. I am inundated. I'm snacking on them, eating cucumber/radish salad and tonight I will fry some. (they taste like potatoes)

Anybody have any other suggestions?
