Roasted French Breakfast Radishes

Yield: 4 Servings

2 Lbs. French Breakfast Radishes, Halved Lengthwise

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Sweet Onion Sugar

½ Teaspoon French Grey Salt

½ Teaspoon Ground Pink Peppercorns

Radishes have made a comeback in recent years. No longer relegated to the salad bar, they now grace even the finest tables in the finest establishments – like yours and ours! Roasted root vegetables have been very popular here at the farm for many years now. So recently we decided to broaden our repertoire and add these roasted French Breakfast radishes to our menu as well. And since we grow these radishes in our garden, it is a natural for us to pick them, roast them immediately, and serve alongside something as wonderful as braised pork loin. We love the nuanced flavor given to the dish by our addition of Sweet Onion Sugar. Once you try these, you won’t need to be convinced: you’ve now become a home chef!


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place prepared radishes on the sheet and toss with olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes until fork tender.

Sweet Onion
Sugar isn't just for coffee and
cookies anymore! Use this one
before grilling to add a hint of
caramelized onion to chicken, shrimp, pork, and vegetables. Or for a savory finishing touch, sprinkle some before baking on top of breads, scones & muffins.

French Grey
Sea Salt
With its artisanal, Old
World appeal, French Grey  
sea salt is a favorite of professional chefs. Hand harvested from mineral-rich salt beds, we believe this one is the perfect salt for accomplished Home Chefs as well.

Pink Peppercorns
While they have a fresh,
peppery flavor, pink peppercorns
are not pepper. They are the
fruit of a Brazilian tree that is part
of the cashew/mango family. Their sweet, mild flavor works well in delicate sauces, as well as in seafood and poultry dishes. Crush with a mortar and pestle.
