I’ve never been a fan of radishes.
They taste bitter and they make unsuspecting children cry. (video below)
That poor kid.
Her parents let her think that she was about to eat a teeny tiny little apple, but it was all a cruel lie. After she spit the radish out, she seemed older, wiser, perhaps a little cynical. But still wearing a ridiculous turban. Those parents should be court marshaled.
But radishes. I have good news on that front.
If you roast them for a long time, they come out tasting like potatoes. Yes. I learned this technique from the Gnom-Gnom blog. I have a bit of a blog crush on this website. The author is a painter as well as a cook, so the images and design are amazing. And she came up with a way to rehabilitate radishes. No easy feat.
If only she had been there to save that poor baby!
