The Beautiful Black Radish

I’ve only just tried Black Radish for the first time this week. I find them gorgeous to look at and they taste great!

Aside from being a beautiful root that adds a striking aesthetic compliment to many dishes, the black radish also apparently has many uses that are beneficial for the health, inside and out. I’m not a radish expert but here are a few of its uses according to my research:

Salted Herbs – Herbes Salées

Herbes salées, or fresh herbs and vegetables preserved in salt, are a traditional seasoning from Québec, and in Acadian parts of Atlantic Canada. The salted herb mixtures are used to season stews, soups and sauces etc… and can be kept in the fridge or freezer for several months.

Coconut Aloe Body Cream

I’m trying to cut back on store bought toiletries and cosmetics, as much as I can these days.
This creamy whipped homemade coconut lotion smells amazing and feels so luxurious on even the driest of skin.
