radishes

All of those divine looking radishes at the farmers' market on sunday reminded me of a recipe for radish butter that I pulled out of a magazine several years ago. So simple and good. Enjoy!

Radish Butter

8 medium radishes (one bunch) cleaned and trimmed
6 tbls of unsalted butter, room temperature
coarse salt and pepper to taste
1 baguette

Grate radishes on large holes of grater, place on paper towels, and squeeze out excess liquid. Combine radishes and butter in a bowl and mix well. Spread radish mixture on a baguette slice and season with salt and pepper (note: radishes can be soaked in cold water for several hours to add crispness if desired.)

(from Martha Stewart Living, April 2002)

P.S. Here is another version of the recipe (from Orangette).
