You may remember that I have a slight obsession with radish and butter sandwiches. It comes from a memory of my Nanny, who used to make them all the time when I was little. Sometimes she would skip the bread all together and just smear butter on the radish and pop it in her mouth. It got me thinking, “Well, I make herb butter, so why not make radish butter?” GENIOUS!!! I’m sure I am not the first person to come up with this, but I am still proud of the idea and glad I thought of it. I am currently eating this on pita chips. You have to try this, especially if you love butter (which is everyone) and radishes (if you don’t, try this recipe and it may change your mind).
About 8 radishes
1/2 stick of butter
salt and pepper to taste
Half the radishes, cube the butter, and pulse them in your food processor. Add just a pinch of salt and pepper before you pulse.
You could also use a box grater to make the radishes have more of a glamourous look to them, and mix the softened butter in the radishes. I like the little flecks of red and pink in my butter; plus, all that grating is a pain.
One thought on “Radish Butter”
That’s funny, I had only heard about this idea for the first time a few days ago when looking up radish recipes. I can imagine how this would work – interesting. Will have to add radish to my market shopping list!!!
