What Can I Cook With Daikon Radishes?

Good Questions

Q: We recently received some daikon radishes in our winter CSA box. We live in an area in which Asian ingredients are hard to come by and I don't especially like them raw on salads, etc.

Do you have any other suggestions? I hate to let local, organic produce to go waste.

Also, Elizabeth suggests pickling them, which will cut their spicy bite a bit. Readers, what are your favorite ways to cook daikon radishes?
