Never really cared for Beets(to sweet) or pickled eggs but I just had a few last month and I sprinkled a little salt on them pickled eggs.
They was pretty darn good.
Personally, I like them with butter and a little salt, but whatever floats your boat.
(Directed at the author, not necessarily you, Nick)
I also dice them into things like spaghetti sauce, soups, stews, and meat pies.
The author is correct. Beets are almost a miracle food.
I just might try a beet cocktail.
I love beets. Cook the tops like spinach, eat the root stewed or pickled. Best veggie ever!
Thes sure look better that when old guys would fish them out of the communal jar at the tavern LOL
I love beets - red ones, purples ones, golden one........doesn’t matter.
(I know this isn’t recipe time)
However, my favorite way to fix them is wrap them in foil after putting a little salt and pepper and roast them till soft.........yumm!!!!!
(Much better if you peel them first, but if you cook them with the skins, the skins do come off rather easily after cooking.)
I like to eat them once or twice a decade.
I was raised in a household that always had pickled cucumbers, onions(various) and or beets on the dinner table..
Sometimes the beets were canned beets pickled.. BUT
the difference between canned beets and fresh beets
boiled until fairly soft there’s no comparison..
Cider vinegar infused with various herbs and maybe garlic..
Olive oil infused with herbs in the same way...
a little Brown sugar.. salt and pepper..
as a kicker a dab of sesame oil... (optional)
some water (to taste)..
** let stand for a few hours or even a day or two..
and for an adventure add some boiled eggs...
We’re talking snack city here..
Taste the pickle... If it tastes GOOD to you
the veggies will taste good to you.. a little
more salt or brown sugar may be needed..
For some making it all HOT(picante/peppers) will
add intrigue... and “interest”..
Hated them as a kid. Mom served them at nearly every dinner. As an adult, I can’t get enough. I love them.
I am a soap maker and use the juice as a natural colorant for some of my soaps.
Oven roasted with salt & pepper. Great!
try making Barszcz / borscht — it’s delicious
There aren’t very many foods I won’t eat. Beets made the list.
way 6, pour down toilet!
Cooked ground red beets, fresh horseradish and vinegar, sugar to taste, mix and enjoy.
Where do you get beet juice??
Beets and greens fresh from the garden with a big pat of butter...nom. My wife grows a ton of beets...
