In the Spring, when the young radishes are available, these
radish sandwiches are absolutely wonderful!

Spring Radish Tea Sandwich Recipe:
Afternoon Tea & High Tea,
Yields: 24 sandwiches
Prep time: 10 min
Thinly sliced radishes
16 slices best-quality white bread*
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
Choose the best-quality white or wheat bread as
possible. Never serve end slices. Freezing the bread before cutting and then
spreading makes for easier handling.
Spread one side of each piece of bread lightly with butter.
Top the buttered side of the eight (8) slices of bread with the sliced radishes and top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side down.
Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again.
Yields 8 whole sandwiches or 16 halves or 32 fourths.
