identification time

While there has been much eating and drinking on the weekend, life is getting in the way of writing about such things just yet. So here is a teaser. Spotted at the Healesville organic market was this interesting vegetable. Can you guess what it is and if so, have you ever cooked with it?




Two clues: Yes it is black and no it is not a beetroot.

Is it some breed of turnip?

I would use it exactly as my father used to do with the regular radishes he always grew in the garden - sliced in summer salads. Occasionally we would eat them 'solo' as a snack with a dip of mayonnaise or yogurt and cucumber.

You can grate it really finely, mix it with a dressing and serve as a salad, goes well with beef. If you leave it to sit, it does develop a sulphurous smell, just blame the dog!
