Author Notes: This is a simple dish. It is the sort of thing that I like to make when winter's brashness begins to slip away and segue into the gentle spring time. I would reccommend serving this either slightly warm or room temperature. tinymango

This recipe is excellent: it's peppery but balanced, and I'd never thought of cooking radishes! It was a little sweet for me though. I'd scale back on the honey and sugar, and possibly the raisins as well. It's awesome though!
