beets




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!

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
