When it comes to planting radishes, I always go above and beyond. I plant a new row every week, and replace those that I harvest with new ones. In 2002, I had an over abundance of radish and needed to find a new use for them. Here is what I came up with:
Using a slicer, we shaved the radishes into slices that were less than 1/8 inch thick. Spray a cookie sheet with light cooking oil, (I used olive oil), and place the radishes in a single layer. Spray the radish slices again real lightly with oil, then lightly sprinkle on chili powder. Preheat the oven to around 150 degrees, and place the cookie sheet on the center rack. Let cook until the radish slices become crisp, but not burned. Let cool, and put in a bowl.
Share these with your friends, but do not tell them what they are eating. Let them try to guess. They won't know. But they will know that it is not your average potato chip.
