Here's a great new way to enjoy fresh local radishes... ROAST THEM!
Harvest of the Month Program Celebrates Radishes Wed. May 24, at Black River Memorial Hospital
Radishes are popping out of local gardens all over the region and are a perfect healthy snack, with a good source of fiber, B-vitamins and other nutrients. “Radishes are most often in salads and relish trays, but with our BWELLthy recipe this month, we’ve roasted them in the oven for a mild and flavorful outcome,” explained Ruth Lahmayer Chipps, MS, RDN, CD, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at Black River Memorial Hospital. “Radishes come in many varieties-- slice them thin in garden salads or enjoy with light ranch dip. On May 24, from 11:30am-12:30pm, join Registered Dietitian Ruth Lahmayer Chipps at Black River Memorial Hospital for a Harvest of the Month recipe demonstration featuring radishes. Taste tests and recipes will be provided.
