One of the simple pleasures of Fall is the root vegetables that are available. Considering I used to only eat beets that were pickled I realized how much I was missing out on when I was introduced to the simplicity of a sweet boiled beet. I'm not crazy..(well just a little), but a boiled beet, sliced while warm and sprinkled with the slightest bit of sea salt is AMAZING!
Of course I'm extremely spoiled because I have access to freshly picked, local beets that are really, really sweet. I boil a 4 inch (diameter) beet in water until tender, run under cold water to remove the skin, slice, sprinkle with salt and serve.
Simplicity is a beautiful thing!
