The black radish is also known as Spanish radish or black mooli. The flesh is crisp and white, with a hot, peppery taste. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, E and B. They are also known for their ability to fight off infection and promote healthy digestive function and respiratory health. Peel them for a milder flavour.
You can eat them raw or cooked. Here are some simple ideas:
Grab a radish, spread with little butter and sprinkling of course sea salt and munch.
Slice or grate and add to a salad or slaw.
Chop and serve with dips.
Slice thinly and pack into a jam jar. Pour over a mixture of equal parts wine vinegar and water with a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of sugar. You can eat them almost immediately or they will keep for a few weeks.

Sauté and serve as a vegetable side dish.
