Every Summer, I look forward to planting my garden so I can have fresh radishes. Radishes have always been my favorite vegetable! They are so delicious to just snack on with a bit of salt. But the hard thing is once they are harvested if you don’t use them quickly they go soft. And that is really the best part of the radish, the crunch!
That is until I found out the best kitchen hack to keep radishes fresh! So I’m going to share my secret kitchen hack on how to store radishes so you can enjoy them fresh and crisp!
Store Radishes to stay Fresh and Crisp
If you follow this simple kitchen hack then you can keep your radishes fresh and crisp for up to 1-2 weeks in the fridge!
Some people may say this kitchen hack keeps your radishes fresh for 1 week. But I actually forgot about my radishes before I went out of town for a week. When I got back my radishes were still fresh and crisp 1.5 weeks later! Actually, I’ve been able to keep mine fresh up to 4 weeks.
But before I get to my kitchen hack, I gotta share a few more homemaking tips. Running a home can be costly. And when you have kids it can get messy.

Radishes Kitchen Hack
So now that we have those homemaking hacks out of the way, let’s get to a fun kitchen hack! You can check it out in this short Kitchen Hack Video below. Or for written instructions keep reading.
But you will be amazed to find out that they are great for more than just wiping up spills or cleaning the house!
This is how you store radishes to keep them fresh and crisp for up to 1-2 weeks in the fridge!
First, select a great bundle of radishes from the store or pluck your own from your garden.
Remove the leaves.
Wash them to remove any dirt.
Remove the stem and roots. If you leave these on, the Radishes shrivel and go soft.
Now here is the biggest secret. After you trim off the leaves, stem, and roots that often leaves the radish open to dry out. But when you use this secret kitchen hack it keeps them moist and crisp all week long!
Get a large gallon-sized resealable bag and Bounty Advanced Paper Towels. The kind that let you “select a size” so you can use smaller pieces of the paper towels.
Line the bottom of the resealable bag the paper towels.
Put still-damp radishes on top of the paper towels.
Add another layer of paper towels.
Add another layer of still-damp radishes on top.
Repeat this process of a layer of paper towels and a layer of damp radishes until all the radishes are in place.
Make sure the final layer is a layer of paper towels.
Squeeze out excess air from the bag and seal.
Now store the bag in the fruit or vegetable drawer in your fridge. And your radishes will keep fresh and crisp for 1-2 weeks!
And whenever you have a craving for fresh radishes, just open the bag, move the paper towels to the side and take out your radishes. Replace the paper towels, reseal the bag, and return to the fridge. The rest will continue to keep!
