meat. The Radish is a member of the cabbage family that is believed to have
originated in the eastern part of the Mediterranean and in western Asia. The most

beet, have been used as a medical food for liver disorders.
Radish can be cut in chunks and cooked in stews, where it loses most of its pungency and makes a passable substitute for turnip. It is more popular as a refreshing salad or fresh pickle.
Radish eaten raw is generally sliced or grated, sprinkle with salt and left to stand for about 10 minutes. It is then washed, drained and combined with a dressing. The Chinese often combine strips of white radish with half-ripe papaya to make a popular appetizer.
