Zesty Garden Fresh Radish Butter, GF, LF
This is my second year to attempt to grow radishes here in Oklahoma. Last year they didn't grow bigger than seedlings. This year I ended up with a gallon of radish greens, but the roots didn't really develop.
I didn't want all my efforts to go to waste and since I did have about 4 Tablespoons of minced radish root, I decided to make radish butter!
It couldn't be more simple or more tasty! The oil from the butter really tones down the sharpness of the radish for a very pleasant yet zesty flavor.
I made some drop biscuits using Aldi's Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix. It was an impulse buy that I wanted to try. The biscuits are so yellow because of the rich, orange egg yolks from the locally sourced eggs that I used.
Zesty Garden Fresh Radish Butter
4 tablespoons minced radish root, about 4-6 radishes
4 tablespoons minced garlic scapes (the green part of the garlic as it's growing, I used a handful)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1. Mince radishes and garlic scapes in a food processor with salt. I have a small 2 cup processor for small projects.
2. Scrape minced veggies out of the food processor into a bowl with softened butter and mash together until combined.
Spread on fresh bread or I think this will be fantastic on burgers or roast beef sandwiches!
