Baked Maple RadishesHave you ever tried a baked radish? Roasting tones down the heat of the mustard oil in raw radishes, and real maple syrup amps up their sweetness.


1 bunch radishes, scrubbed, topped and tailed 
2 to 3 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature (If using salted butter, omit the extra salt.) 
1 to 2 tbsp real maple syrup 
1/2 to 1 tsp salt 
1 to 2 tsp cinnamon, ground (optional) 
1/2 to 1 tbsp fresh ginger root, grated (optional) 


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small baking dish, coat the radishes in the softened butter, then pour the maple syrup over them. Sprinkle on a dusting of salt, cinnamon and ginger, if using. Adjust the quantities of cinnamon and ginger to your liking. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife or fork can be easily inserted into a radish.
