I read somewhere this week ( not sure where …) about what happens when you roast your everyday grocery store red radish. According to the exceedingly smart cook/writer, roasting reduces the bitterness of the radish and turns it soft and sweet.
After the radishes hopped into a 395 degree oven and sat there for about 50 minutes, I removed them and dropped a pat of butter on them. I then proceeded to drop the box of Maldon sea salt also..butter and sea salt are the best friends of a radish and the tastes complement roasted radishes just as well as raw ones!
Roasting “totally transforms” them according to the Hubs!
