You have to try roasted radishes to appreciate their goodness. A cool-weather staple at most farmers’ markets, they come out of the oven beautifully every time. If you still have garlic scapes in the freezer from last spring, wonderful. If not, substitute with garlic and scallion. Radishes should be available well into fall at Shenot Farm, and butter is always on offer at Brunton Dairy.
