Local Organic Produce | Black Radish, Beet, Rutabaga

Much like pondering a glass containing equal parts water and air, the way you look at a black radish demonstrates whether you're a pessimist or an optimist.

For pessimistic locavores, a black radish symbolizes the depths of winter; the soft and hard rind squashes have all been eaten, the local winter greens have been buried beneath several feet of snow and the supply of more colorful storage crops are running low.

But the optimist locavore looks beneath the black radish's thick skin and recognizes the sweet and spicy flesh just beneath the surface.

The optimist might consider this portentous root to be the very first sign of spring because wherever a black radishes appears, the first spring-dug parsnips and local asparagus harvest are soon to follow.

These hardy radishes have made it through the winter and so have you! Optimists can celebrate this accomplishment with Black Radish Chips or a Black Radish and Potato Salad.

And this Black Radish and Blood Orange Salad is so tasty that you might just convince those pessimists that the glass is half full after all.
