Growing Radish

Maybe a tip from the Bavarians: slice the radish thinly and sprinkle with salt. This will neutralise the bitter taste, and the salt will wash out with the liquid. You will need about a tea spoon of salt per 300mm (=foot) of radish. The connoisseur will do ONE spiral cut along the whole length of the radish with about 1mm pitch.
