Daikon, dasheen, dandelion, and dill are all vegetables that start with the letter D. Winter radish is another name for daikon, and eddo or taro is another name for dasheen.
There are many ways to use these vegetables. Dandelion greens grown in gardens are great for cooking, and the tops can also be used in salads. Dasheen is grown for its underground parts, which taste like potatoes and can be used in the same way.
Dasheen leaves must be cooked in a certain way and drained before they can be eaten. Dill is in the same family as parsley, and it is often used to pickle and flavour food. Daikon comes from Asia. Most of the time, it is cooked and not eaten raw.
