radish butter

Author Notes: All winter, I search for exciting recipes to make old food seem new, and then the spring comes and I am so desperate for fresh food that I want to eat it right out of the ground. In the interest of being more civilized, I chop up radishes into butter, and then I eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.alana_chernila

Makes: 1/2 cup


  • 4 ounces softened butter
  • 6 radishes, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 chives, roughly snipped with scissors
  • 1/2 teaspoon the best salt on your shelf
In This Recipe


  1. Combine the butter, radishes, lemon juice, chives, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Mix gently with a wooden spoon, folding the ingredients into the butter.
  3. Serve on bread, or crackers, or anything you to prevent you from just eating the radish butter with a spoon, which you might be tempted to do. (I promise I won't tell.)
