Blistered Shishitos and Radish Pods

This week, we are keeping it simple with grilled shishitos and radish pods. 

Shishitos are an asian pepper that are not spicy. When eaten raw they taste similar to a green bell pepper, but they are really at their best when blistered over the grill or in a cast iron skillet. 

Radish Pods, also known as 'rat-tail' radish, are an edible seed pod that taste just like radishes- They may be our new favorite crop on the farm! Just like shishitos, we've found that grilling them is one of the best ways to cook them.
