What To Know About Beets

What To Know About Beets

When I first started writing about food, it was always my intention to highlight ingredients, how to shop, compare prices, choose them, store them as well as use them. And I did make a stab at that, years ago, under “Ingredients” in my menu. So the first post in this series is What To Know About Beets.

Grandma's Refrigerator Pickled Beets

Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets

My Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets are a simple, classic pickled beet that makes just enough to fill a jar or two, depending on the size of the jar. Because Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets are so easy, you can just knock them out when you have a few minutes and there’s no compelling reason to make a bunch. You can pretty much just have them whenever you want them, especially these days when beets are available all year ’round.

Have I ever told you I’m wild about Beets? We had a rough start, beets and I did, way back in elementary school. Canned beets, blech! But garden fresh beets? They’re another story altogether. So if you haven’t had beets in awhile, “…all I’ma sayin’ is give beets a chance…” ♬

Irish Pub Salad, bibb lettuce, pickled beets, and amazing dressing topped with bleu cheese

Irish Pub Salad

Irish Pub Salad is just chock full of all of my favorite things! It’s as if you took all the best things from one of those old tired salad bars from the ’90s, except everything is updated and fresh and then you topped it all off with a marvelous, creamy dressing. I mean, just look – there are hard-boiled eggs and pickled beets in this salad. And tomatoes, red onion, radishes (and other veggies if you’d like) and don’t forget the sprinkling of bleu cheese!
