Beet Brain

I’ve had beets on my mind for days. Most probably because my beet patch is ready to harvest and I’ve been looking at ways to preserve them for winter.

Today I tried a new recipe and think it shows great promise; Red Root Relish.

It is a mixture of beets, purple cabbage, onions and sweet red pepper cooked in a vinegar-sugar-salt solution.

A little taste before canning confirmed the potential and I truly do believe this will be down-right tasty after the flavors meld a few weeks.

Winter food just got a little more interesting. :)
