Cooking with fresh produce

(Continued)

“There are lots of crazy, cool things you can do with radishes,” Miller revealed, and the leaves should be removed from them after they are harvested because they cause moisture and nutrient loss.

Holly Murray, health and human sciences extension educator, along with Anna Morrow, agriculture and natural resources extension educator, and Miller prepared various recipes using the vegetables. Murray pointed out, “It’s good to use fresh items, things we grow or get at farmers’ markets, but a lot of times, people don’t know what to do with them, so we’ve come up with a few different ideas” (please see box on Page 1).

Murray announced the ingredients can be changed to meet “your tastes or what you have around .... (For example) you can use minced or powdered garlic instead of a fresh clove.”

I liked most of the recipes, and my favorite, the bok choy salad, I even made at home since then. I also learned some new ways to prepare radishes.

Murray and Morrow announced they are considering having more classes offered throughout the year.
