Description

"This confit is a sweet, sharp and slightly peppery relish, with a glorious pink colour. Try it with fish, with meat (it's lovely with lamb) and even with bread and cheese."

Ingredients

9 ozradishes (trimmed, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices)
1⁄2 lemon (zest and juice only)
1⁄2 orange (zest and juice only)
2 Tsugar (granulated or caster)
1 ozbutter
  salt and pepper (to taste)
  water (to cover)

Instructions

1.) Place all ingredients in a wide shallow pan along with water enough to cover everything.
2.) Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Gently simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring from time to time. Continue to simmer until all the liquid has reduced down to a few tablespoons of syrup, and the radishes are very tender. Serve warm (though it also reheats well!).
