Roasted Radishes with Garlic Scape Butter

You have to try roasted radishes to appreciate their goodness. The roasting process brings out a sweetness in the radishes that is unexpected but delightful. 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.
