When I first read about this, I thought, This is just crazy enough to work! Tigress brought this Culinate article to my attention and I just happened to get lovely radishes in my farm box around the same time. Fresh, crunchy radishes, grown by my hero, Thaddeus, at Capay Organic and butter - buttahhh..... the universal donor of deliciousness. What did I have to loose?
The butter enriches and rounds out the gentle spicy flavor of the radishes. The salt brings it all together. The crunch of the radishes plus the mouth feel of the butter gives as much satisfaction as a deep fried goodie. This is a perfect afternoon snack and would be a lovely and elegant cocktail treat. I hope you will try it.
