Can you guess what I am doing? No, I am not bleeding profusely.
Sweet and sour.
In the glass jar…
Or out of the can…
Last summer when we visited family outside Nashville,
Mary served us fresh beets. I was so impressed with this simple dish.
So here’s how she does it…I’ll be happy to share.
I picked up a fresh bunch of beets for under $2.50 for 4 beets.
Fill up a pot with water and just a pinch of salt.
Clean the beets. Cut off the stems.
Add to the pot and soft boil until you can insert a sharp knife and it comes out clean.
Like boiling a potato.
My beets boiled for about an hour.
Drain the beets. When cooled, you will take your beets and cut them into slices or cubes.
However way you prefer to eat them. I guarantee, your hands will look like this.
Place them in a pretty bowl, I’m using my Polish stoneware. Isn’t it pretty?
I added a pinch of salt, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of sugar.
And I neglected to photo the finished product…
There’s no more left for me to even attempt a photo.
Without a doubt, I’ll be making these again for my family.
PS...I forgot to list the tiney splash of apple cider vinegar!!!!
