- Ready In:
- Wash and trim radishes, if large cut them in half.
- Add radishes to a deep pan, add enough water to cover them.
- Add the butter, olive oil, sugar and salt.
- Cover and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered for 12 minutes. (radishes should be tender and the liquid reduced to a glaze)
- If the radishes are cooked before the liquid has reduced then remove the radishes and cook liquid, uncovered until it thickens to a glaze.
- Toss the radishes in the glaze, sprinkle with the pepper and parsley and serve.

I didn't completely cover the radishes with water and I still had more liquid than glaze. So when the radishes were done, I removed them from the sauce and cooked it down, trying to get a glaze. I still didn't really get a glaze but I poured it over the radishes anyway. The flavor was good. I thought they tasted like a cross between cauliflower and turnips.
Wowzers! Are these good!...I've been wanting to try cooked radishes for the longest time...but were afraid that they would not be tasty...boy was I wrong...even hubby loved them...in fact he tried it first and said...Wow are these good...now I don't have to eat them raw anymore...thanks for posting this jewel of a recipe...it's a keeper...:)
I never considered cooking radishes - these are delicious. Mind, Mr Grumpy would not eat his. Make sure to use just enough water to cover. I was not paying attention and had too much in there. Lost patience and poured off some of the liquid to get to a glaze more quickly. So easy to do and so tasty.
This was easy and delicious. I also didn't have success getting the water to thicken. I removed the radishes with a slotted spoon after the required simmering time. Then tried to reduce the liquid which it did reduce but the sauce didn't thicken into a glaze. It still tasted wonderful however with sweet, tart, sour, tangy, salty flavors! I replaced fresh parsley with fresh cilantro (it's Taco Tuesday!) and used a light sprinkle of pyramid salt for finishing. Prepared for the FYC game. Would definitely make this again!
