Greetings from the Student Farm CSA,

Radishes in general are low in saturated fat and very low in cholesterol. They are a good source of riboflavin, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, copper and manganese and are a very good source of fiber, vitamin C, folate and potassium.
Our radish varieties are Pink Beauty and French Breakfast. The Pink Beauty Radish is sweet and tasty! Great for slicing or just eating by themselves!
The French Breakfast Radish has a crisp texture and a mild to delicately sweet flavor. In classic French style, they are served uncooked, trimmed at the top and bottom halved lengthwise with a little salt and a generous dollop of butter along side.
Here’s a little more information about the French Breakfast radish and a recipe for a Honey Topped French Breakfast Radish Tartine:
While the weather looks hit or miss this Saturday, Sunday promises to be pleasant. Here’s a recipe for Roasted Eggplant Spread for your late summer gathering:
