Radishes with butter

We had our usual sunday dinner today, and my two girls both showed up with appies
The eldest had a neighbor give her some radishes and and idea, which we put together and tried..It seemd odd but was it ever good. Of course you have to enjoy radishes! It's so easy, but you need sweet radishes, the big ones get to strong and burn..Here's what the person who gave them to her suggested
clean and chill the radishes, take some good butter and let it soften, the put it in a bowl and put some salt in another bowl and plate your radishes..Then spread a little butter on the radish and sprinkle with as much or as little salt as you like and munch away..I have to say it was wonderful. The radishes were sweet and tender and with the butter and the grey salt I used yummy. I haven't planted radishes in years, but, I will be doing it soon and will look for the kind he used...they were called easter egg.MY other daughter brought a tray of sliced cucumbers, topped with cream cheese mixed with cilantro,garlic,parsley,basil,thyme and a little 1/2+1/2, she spooned it on the cukes then topped the whole thing with red and green pepper jelly..wonderful nothing was left of either appy
Thought I'd share the fun with you..

Amazing how the simplest things ( the radishes with butter) taste so, so good!

My mom always slices them and puts them into some good tasting oil. I think the fat (oil or butter) cuts the bite.

The oil or butter most likely tames the heat. These radishes were not hot at all, just i'm not sure how to describe them, but almost juicy and sweet.

radishes with salt and butter are awesome. those strong ones, slice and saute in butter...the heating reduces the burn, also very yummy.

I'm a huge radish fan!

Radishes with butter sound great to me, either raw or sauteed! I've saved both recipe ideas to try. I also have a zillion chives, so I'll chop some of them to use in the butter.

I usually grow the very reliable French Breakfast variety of radish, but will try the Easter Egg blend next spring. Maybe this fall.

Here are a couple of pictures of my rads - one is the remainder of a bumper crop and the other is a picture of roasted rads, onions, and garlic. The latter was a nice surprise - the radishes were sweet, tender and very tasty when roasted with the aromatic vegs!
