    Default Black winter radish

    Round here in the shops at this time of year there are black winter radish. I have grown some and apart from eating them raw in salad am at a bit of a loss as what to do with them. Any ideas?

    Thanks folks. I have used them on mixed root veg soup and will now try them roasted.
