First Radishes

Once again it's the radish that wins the race for first edible crop. This time I tried using both pods and leaves. The latter went into a quick saute with some onions and collards (from the store), with butter and salt. The internets claimed that a quick saute in olive oil would "crisp up" the pods, but that was not the case at all, and the spicy flavor was considerably diminished. I think next time I will just toss them into a salad, or serve them in a cute little dish with some cheese and crackers as an app. They are too crunchy/zesty to destroy with heat. Unless perhaps a light beer batter...
