I am a naughty radish munching bunny!
I promised to do this sweet little giveaway (see below) at the beginning of the month, but I've been distracted, with, admittedly THE CUTEST distraction around. However better late than never, right?!



So speaking of radishes, we've been enjoying an abundant supply of all various shapes, sizes and colours from our local farmers market and now more recently some from our own garden. While my favourite way to eat them is thinly sliced on a toasted piece of rye sourdough (also from the farmers market) smeared with cream cheese and sprinkled generously with salt, we have also enjoyed roasting a few to have with our dinner.



Roasting them couldn't be easier and threading them on skewers makes them a little more special.
Calling them brochette? All the more posh.
The humble radish now suitably worthy of a Christmas dinner party, wouldn't you agree?

I also wanted to show you how to use Billington's Unrefined Light Muscovado Sugar in a little bit of a different and surprising way, something seasonal, yet festive and I think these are just the ticket!



  • Billingtons Light Muscovado Roasted Radish Brochettes
  •  
  • 16 medium sized radish, halved
  • 30 grams of butter, melted
  • 30 grams of Billingtons light muscovado sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Flaky sea salt
  • 8 skewers
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F)
  2. Thread 4 radish halves onto each skewer and place in a roasting dish.
  3. Drizzle over the melted butter and sprinkle generously with the muscovado sugar and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Roast in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning occasionally until the radish are fork tender and lusciously caramelized.
  5. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
  6. Makes 8
