I was pleastly suprised with this recipe! To be honest, I hadn't ever thought about cooking radishes...to me, cooking them seems to take away some of the natural peppery flavor radishes have.
This recipe is defintiely a keeper and I think I'll even experiement cooking them up with different herbs & spices.

Since radishes are related to turnips, I thought I'd try this.  The sugary glaze was not to our liking, so I stirred in about a tablespoon of deli-style mustard.  That was good!  The radishes did take quite a bit longer to cook, more like 15 minutes.  Like turnips, I like raw radishes, but didn't care for them crisp-tender.  When thoroughly cooked they became sweet. I'd make this again - adding the mustard.
