Hello all,  I'm new to all this and posted this Q: on the welcome forum.  Anyway the Q: I have is... I need to use up some radishes and did some research on the net - came across a recipe for radish butter, looks really good and easy to do.  The recipe says you can freeze it but does not say for how long.  Have any of you heard of this or a similar recipe, how did it turn out?  Thank you in advance for your info.

happy-flowerHello Mashell,

      Radish butter sounds delightful, we love radish sandwiches made with butter and good homemade bread. We have so many great cooks here on CITR, I am sure someone will know the answer to you question. I would think it would keep as well as any herb butter in the freezer. I have made horseradish butter in the past, we like a small dollop on grilled steak, but I have not made enough to freeze.

That really does sound like a good idea Mashel!  I love radishes on all sorts of things, one of the BEST is on tacos!  Onions are too onion-y IMO, but radishes have such a nice peppery bite instead of hot, they're especially good on fish tacos!  Diced up green onions are nice though, and if anyone has kids, the little round rings can help them appreciate a mild onion flavor without scaring them off from onions completely.

I know you can freeze butter with no problem, most places say it's safe for anywhere from 6 months to 1 year, but when I buy it on sale, it gets frozen for as long as it needs to be!  I've never had a problem with it, I stick a date sticker on it so I can use the oldest first for baking, and the 'not-so-old' for the dinner table.

***  Radish butter sounds really good for using on a sandwich or crackers and snacks, or dinner rolls with the right meal. I do suspect that the liquid in radishes might change the texture especially when freezing, but, mixing it up and freezing in small amounts that you will be able to use up completely fairly fast when you defrost it would be a good idea.  I'd say for sure to always defrost in the fridge so remember to take it out the night before you need it.

All that being said, I have some radishes in the fridge now so I'm goin' to go mix some up, but I doubt if it will last long enough to get frozen!   We're not eating very many big meals in this heat so snacks are the order of the day for us!

Thanks again for the info,  I'm going to make some up on Friday and freeze.  I also freeze butter that I purchase on sale, just wondered if it would be the same once you put in fresh veggies.  We are not huge radish fans (just me and I can only eat so many)...but if I put them in something I think I can sneak them in here and there.  Who knows maybe I can make some converts out of the rest of the family.  Please let me know how yours turns out.

Well, I failed in the radish butter assignment, I was making some chicken salad for sandwiches at lunch today and it occurred to me that some of those radishes would provide some nice crunch and flavor in there since I didn't have any celery and didn't really want onion in it.  It was mighty tasty!  It will have to wait for another day!

I'm not sure I can like 'radish butter' as I don't care for radishes.

However, I did make Green Tomato Relish a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to have turned out well.  If anyone wishes the recipe, I will be glad to share.
