Recipe with radishes

I hope this isn't lame, but I thought I'd start posting simple ways to cook or eat a vegetable we are currently harvesting.

First on the list: Radish.

Ingredients: fresh radishes WITH greens; butter; salt and pepper.

Preparing: Select radishes with fresh greens (not wilting, browning or going bad). Wash well and remove any bad leaves. Cut the radish in half from the root to the top, being sure to leave some greens on both halves. Heat some butter in a pan and place the radishes in the hot butter; greens out of the pan and off of the butter for now. After 3-5 minutes (depending on how crispy you like your radish), add salt and pepper and move the greens into the pan. Saute for a few more minutes until greens are tender.

Eating: Eat the whole vegetable, greens and all. This method of cooking makes the sweetness of the radish come out, and it is oh-so-juicy.

Dish history: We had this several years ago for the first time at a friend's house. (Thanks, Cal.)
