From Dirt To Dinner: Beets
Darryl is one of those people who likes pretty much anything. Liver- yep, brussel sprouts- yep, tomotoes- yep, curry- yep, cilantro- yep. But the one food he is not so fond of it is beets. Whereas I love beets. One time I ate so many of them it turned my pee turned purple. So last year we grew a pretty good crop of beets. I pickled almost all of them. We ate a few after boiling them, but didn't do anything creative.
To pickle beets, you boil them so you can get the skins off. The slice them up and add a vinegar/water/pickling spice solution to them. It is really quite easy. This year we didn't grow any beets as we still have some left from last year.
