Did you know?

Black radish is the main variety in Prince de Bretagne’s radish range and also the strongest on the palate! They are very easily recognised thanks to their black colour. Inside, the flesh is white and, while certainly powerful, delicious.

Grown in open fields, black radishes are harvested by hand by Prince de Bretagne’s market gardeners and packed directly on the farm.

Cooking tips

HOW TO CHOOSE BLACK RADISH

Whichever radish you choose, the root should have an exhilarating vigour. Tired radishes should be avoided, given to rabbits or composted.

HOW TO PREPARE BLACK RADISH

The leaves and the top of the radish should be cut and they should also be thoroughly washed.

HOW TO COOK BLACK RADISH

7 to 10 mins

Steam cooking

25 mins

In the oven

7 mins

Pan-fried

 

They can be eaten raw or cooked and have a distinct taste.

HOW TO STORE BLACK RADISH

Black radishes should not be stored for too long as they tend to soften easily. The ideal is 2 to 3 days maximum in the salad drawer of your fridge, wrapped in a damp cloth. As black radishes are often large, you might find you only use half. Do not peel or wash the remaining half, which should be  consumed as quickly as possible.

Cooking suggestions

They are excellent thinly sliced carpaccio-style (they add freshness to salads), grated and also in pickles (marinated in vinegar). You can also serve them as they are or in a selection of radishes. Grated, they pair well with sushi or sashimi.

Chef’s tip

Don’t throw out radish tops. The fresh leaves are high in vitamins and iron and make delicious soups, sauces and condiments.
