Braised Red Radishes


20 plump radishes
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
1 shallot, diced
1 teaspoon chopped thyme or several dried pinches
Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper


Trim the leaves from the radishes, leaving a bit of the green stems, and scrub them. If the leaves are tender and in good condition, wash them and set aside. Leave smaller radishes whole and halve or quarter larger ones.

Melt 2 to 3 teaspoons butter into a small sauté pan. Add the shallot and thyme and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Add radishes, a little salt and pepper, and water just to cover. Simmer until the radishes are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the leaves if using and cook until they’re wilted and tender, 1 minute more. Remove the radishes to serving dish. Boil the liquid, adding a teaspoon or two more butter if you like, until only about ¼ cup remains. Pour it over the radishes and serve
