Braised Radishes

From

Ingredients

2 bu. radishes (about 1 pound),
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Method

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.
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.
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.
