Still Life with Root Vegetables

Those green tinted root vegetables are carrots but they taste a little like what they look like -a variation on a Daikon. I've never had them before and I love them, not as sweet as a regular carrot. The beets were also really good and surprisingly not beet red when cooked - more like a turnip that had been dipped quickly in a red stain. The poatatoes and parsnip are on the menu for tomorrow.

They were all from the same vendor in Union Square - he also had burdock, horseradish, salsify, jerusalem artichokes, all piled up in box trays.
