candy cane beets

August 5, 2009 |  Category:   seasonal



Not much too say about them, except they’re pretty, and we just roast them and throw them into salads or eat them with goat cheese. I find they have a very subtle bitter aftertaste that I don’t find with regular red beets and they don’t turn your pee red, which Mia always gets a kick out of, but has put me in an absolute panic more than a few times when I was pregnant and had forgotten that I had eaten beets the night before. Good grief.

    I loooove roasted beets. These look absolutely delicious. I love them quartered into rustic salads. Sooo good.

    I have never met a beet I didn’t like….I’ll have to try these.
    PS I am coming to New York and would love to stock up on some snacks. Do you have a listing of where you are sold in retail?

    You can find the most selection at Dean & Deluca or depending on when you are coming, at the Brooklyn Flea Market. WHen will you be here?
