Daikon Radish

Yes, they look like white carrots, or parsnips, but they are actually daikon radishes, and a great complement to Asian dishes. Ever tried pickling these babies? A customer highly recommends Pickled Daikon Radish (recipe can be found on page 288 of Jennifer MacKenzie's "The Complete Book of Pickling," published in 2009 by Robert Rose, Inc., Toronto, Canada). You can also find great recipes at allrecipes.com for pickled daikon radishes and carrots. These recipes look simple, and use only a few ingredients. Those are the kind of recipes I like! I especially like to dice a variety of roots and roast them together with the family's favorite spices. What are your favorite recipes for winter's roots? Leave your comments, and I'll post!
