Butter Braised Radishes

I like to make this side dish when I find local farmer’s market radishes in the spring, but a fresh bunch from the grocery store will be delicious as well. Radishes transform into an entirely different vegetable when cooked. They soften and mellow in the butter, and take on a richness that is balanced by the splash of vinegar and touch of honey. If you have them handy, a sprinkling of fresh herbs, such as dill, mint, tarragon or basil would be a welcome garnish. Serve alongside roasted chicken or fish, or a bright spring pasta.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 ¼ pounds red radishes, trimmed and halved or quartered if large
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar or sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • smoked sea salt for finishing, or other sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Melt the butter over medium high heat. When it just begins to turn brown, add the radishes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring a few times, for 5 or so minutes. They will begin to soften and become more translucent as they are close to done.
  • Raise the heat again to high, and add the vinegar, salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring, then remove from the heat and stir in the honey. Taste for seasoning and add more salt if needed, or sprinkle with the smoked salt if using. Add some more cracked black pepper and serve warm or at room temperature.
