Sautéed Radishes in Orange Butter

1/4 pound one inch diced smoked bacon
6 tbsp undated butter
3 pounds radishes with their greens (quarter lengthwise with some stems still attached, then chop up the rest of the greens)
Salt
Pepper
3 large thin sliced shallots
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice

In a big and deep skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until crisp for about four minutes. While using a slotted spoon transfer the bacon to paper towels. Pour off the bacon fat in the skillet.

Add two tablespoons of the butter into the skillet and melt over moderately high heat. Add the radish greens, season them with salt and pepper and cook. Stir for about 3 minutes until wilted. Now put them into a bowl.

Melt the remaining butter in the skillet. Then put the quartered radishes, sliced shallots and bacon in and cook over moderately high heat. Don’t forget to stir a few times while cooking. The radishes should turn a golden brown in about 6 minutes. Now add the sugar and cook for two minutes until the sugar dissolves. Now add the orange juice and bring to a boil while still stirring a few times. Cook until the radishes are barely tender and the sauce starts to become thick. This should take about two minutes. Now stir in the radish greens and season with salt and pepper.

Now get that scrumptious-ness out a that pan and into your tummy!!!
