Sometimes, if I can't fall asleep, I set the iPod up and listen to podcasts of The Splendid Table. And just before drifting off one winter night, I listened to The Lee Brothers talk about radish butter.
This sent me back out to the cold frame in early February to sprinkle down some radish seeds. And yesterday, I harvested the first one.
I have always been meh about radishes. But radish butter is another animal. Peppery and savory. On toasty bread. Whoa. I didn't push it further when Corey declined a taste. Without any hesitation, I just turned back around and polished off the serving myself.
Here's the recipe. If you are lucky enough to have access to fresh, local butter, make the investment!
