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
