This is the first time I buy a red radish. Initially, I thought they are beetroots. But upon closer look, the label says red radish. So, I bought it because it looks so cute and pink. My son happily pose for me because I want to show how big is the radish. It is round and about the size of a grapefruit.
The skin is red but after peeling off the skin, it is just like regular white radish. However, it doesn’t have the earthy smell as the white variety. It is also firmer and taste nicer.
I boiled the red radish with soft bones ribs, red dates and dried squid.
I also bought some root vegetable call cobo from Tesco. It is this long stick measuring three foot long. It turned out that the thing cannot be eaten because it is very hardy but it gives a nice earthy taste soup. I couldn’t seem to find any root vegetable call cobo in English. Anyone knows what it is call in Cantonese or Mandarin?
