Remember the Maine (course)


Brined (3 hours) and roasted Cornish hens were accompanied by some Israel couscous and the below braised radishes. That's right, you can braise radishes, greens and all. Who knew? This was the main attraction at my test dinner last weekend. I'm ready to have my dinner for eight auctioned off next week. I realize I will have to negotiate the final menu with the successful bidder, but the practice was invaluable.

I never know what to do with all the radishes I grow in my garden. Now I want to try braising them. Brilliant! Looks delicious.

Braised radishes? that's new. I always eat them raw. Another thing, I never had Israeli couscous. I must pick it up at the store next time and try it.
Good luck with the auction.

yum! I have actually never brined meat before. It seems to do wonders for the texture, have to give it a go one day for sure!

This sounds really interesting. I'm one of those odd folk who love radishes. I've never braised them You've put anew bug in my bonnet. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

Radishes are great but never considered cooking them. Radish sandwiches are great. So are your hens!
