1 bunch radishes, scrubbed, topped and tailed [small turnips would work as well]
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 to 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon [optional]
1/2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root [optional]
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a small baking dish, coat the radishes in the softened butter, then pour the maple syrup over them.
Sprinkle on a dusting of salt, cinnamon and ginger, if using. Adjusting the quantities of cinnamon and ginger to your liking.
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife or fork can be easily inserted into a radish.
