Radishes – Or Are They?

I bought these yesterday in my local ALDI. Apart from the sprouting,they looked good and would, definitely, add colour to any salad plate.

The are also quite crunchy, so, must be reasonably freshly picked.

But where is the taste? The pack advertises ‘Peppery’, yet these tasted of nothing. Proper Radishes should add a piquancy to any dish and these failed, miserably. The fact that they are sprouting, I will address on another occasion. ButĀ not all is lost, there is someĀ flavour – from the leaves!
