The snow here is 4 or 5 feet deep. Causes a craving for beef stew and bisquits. Our local store, we only have 2, got in some large, golf ball sized, radishes. Firm, not at all pithy. I decided to try them in the beef stew I'm making. I wondered whether anyone else had tried this and what the results were. I make my stew with all the normal ingredients except peas. Wife doesn't like peas, darn. I do, however, use instant potatoes rather than flour as a thickener. Gives the stew a slightly heartier taste.
