Chardonnay-Braised Radishes

Chardonnay-Braised Radishes

Cooked radishes turn delicately mild and sweet. Braise them just until tender but not soft. Insert a sharp knife into the radish to check doneness. A properly cooked (but not overdone) radish will easily yield to the knife, but it should stay on the blade without falling off.
