We’ve Got Asian Roots

November 8th, 2012

Daikon radish

We just won “Small Business of the Year” from the Greater Dallas Asian-American Chamber of Commerce – woohoo!   So we’re kickin’ it Asian-style this weekend by including Daikon radishes in the co-op style produce shares.

Most often found in Asian grocery stores, the Daikon radish looks like a large, white carrot, though it has the flavor of a radish. It’s an Asian root vegetable used as a food herb in Asian herbal medicine. Both the tuber and the seeds are used medicinally.

The Daikon’s uses are many, treating such problems as cough and asthma, low energy, and yeast infections. Daikon also treats many digestive issues, including nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, and heartburn.
