The other day, I got asked a very strange question: If you are to eat only one kind of vegetable for the rest of your life, what would you choose? It took me a while but I said 大根（だいこん/daikon radish）.
One important use of daikon is I make a cough medicine with it! Cut the white part into small (5 to 10 mm) cubes and cover that with trickle or honey. After a while, a lot of juice comes out of the daikon and the mixture becomes a runny syrup. It does not taste particularly good but it stops coughs like a miracle! If you have a bad cough, try it!! If it doesn’t work, then it’s time to go and see your doctor!
