I remember as a child looking at German Cookbooks and magazines and often seeing pictures of sliced radishes on buttered heavy grain bread. Yuck! As a kid, radishes were definitely not in my repertoire. My how things change. I actually love that super grainy bread, and chive butter with sliced radishes sounds delicious. Here is a recipe for the chive butter with radishes from Martha Stewart, perfect for this week’s share. She did it very fancy and piped the butter on to the radish halves. I am not so fancy!
4TB unsalted Butter, softened
1 TB Chives, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
1 bunch Radish, washed, trimmed and halved lengthwise
Coarse Salt, for serving
Mix butter and chives in bowl. Transfer to small pastry bag fitted with a #70 leaf tip. Pipe butter onto radish halves. Serve on a bed of coarse salt. Like I said above, I am not fancy, I will spread the yummy butter onto some yummy bread, put slices of radishes on top and sprinkle with a bit of coarse salt.
