fancy football feast: part one

I promised to make something manly for the Super Bowl because I made this last weekend during the playoffs:

This crostini spread served as both the appetizers and the main course. Instead of arranging the toppings on the toasted ciabatta bread, I served everything separately so that we could experiment (though I did make strong suggestions as to what to do with it all).

Step one: thinly slice a baguette of your choice, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, and season with S & P. Toast the oven until golden around the edges.

Next: homemade butter:

In a food processor, whirl together heavy cream with salt until it thickens and then separates into solids and liquid (click here for the original post on homemade butter and a link to a helpful video). Pour out the liquid, add water, and give it a whirl. Drain the cloudy water again and repeat this process until the water runs close to clear.

Slather on the crostini and top with thinly sliced radishes and a sprinkle of salt.
