Post Mooli recipies needed...

We've got some HUGE mooli (giant Japanese radish) in the tunnel right now. The last one I picked was over 2ft long and a couple of inches thick, which is a lot of radish. Does anyone have any good mooli recipies? I could really use some...

What, other than what the ancient Greeks used them for?

I tend to peel and slice them for use as a substitute for water chestnuts in stir fries, but they're nice thinly sliced or grated in salads too. I also make refrigerator pickles out of them by adding some sugar and chilli flakes to white vinegar and soaking finely-cubed mooli in that overnight.

omg I'm so jealous! My daikon has been in the ground for some time now I hope it's getting as good as yours! In Japan they grate it raw in salads, or make pickles - mainly salted pickles with thin moon shaped slices that go nicely with rice dishes! Also, a very popular Japanese dish is stewed daikon, you cut it into rounds and simmer it in sweet water containing mirin (sweet japanese wine for cooking) and a splash of soy sauce ('nimono' or simmered dish). It's very good for your health, apparently! You would then eat it with a separate bowl of rice, as in Japan usually you don't pour sauces over the rice but eat separate. Personally, I love crunchy daikon pickles! You can add shiso to give them a cool pink colour too (often yellow food colouring is added, shiso is more natural)! Do a search for "Japanese daikon recipes" as I had no idea mooli was daikon until recently! http://www.foodjimoto.com/2011/09/takuwan-japanese-daikon-sweet-pickles.html This is a lady who makes the pickles and is a great recipe; she's 93 so clearly the pickles are good for you!! Hope this helps, if any of mine are good enough I'm making that tsukemono (pickle) recipe for sure! :D

It's official: Mooli pickles rule. And may let you live to 93 (or beyond). And grated in salad is also way up there on the Mooli Appreciation Scale. Ta!
