  1. Check 2 bunches radishes (about 1 pound), preferably icicle, tops trimmed to 1 inch above roots
  2. Check 3tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. Check 2tablespoons sugar
  4. Check 1/2teaspoon kosher salt
  5. Check 1/4teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the radishes in a large skillet and add just enough cold water to cover, about 2 1/2 cups. Add the butter, sugar, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the radishes are tender when pricked with a paring knife and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, about 12 minutes.
  3. If the radishes are tender but the liquid hasn't reduced sufficiently, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a serving dish and continue reducing the liquid. Spoon it over the radishes and serve with buttered crusty bread.
