This is a beautiful picture of Peter Rabbit eating radishes from Mr Mcgregor's garden. This Beatrix Potter story was one of my favourites as a child and I loved reading it to my children. I am a bit of dreamer and for me the humble home grown radish conjurs this delightful image. My son loves picking things from the garden and eating it, he nibbles on Parsley and Chives when there is not much else growing. He also eats a stick of rhubarb dipping it into sugar. We are truly living off the fat of the land!
Here is a Radish Recipe I have adapted to try:
1 Bunch Radishes, finely sliced (save the greens for soup!)
2 tablespoons chopped Parsley
25g softened Butter
1 tablespoon of Mayonnaise
Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. Spread on fresh crusty bread or crispbread and enjoy!
This recipe belongs to the 'Cucumber Sandwich' brigade, it gives you the fresh taste of the Summer and would make good picnic food.
