Today I made Russian style Borscht! I finished by giant bag of Coombs market BC beets. It was good but not great. After feedback, I experimented with extras… And now it is good, ya! I also put it all in the blender before ziploc freezing. Yum, hello fall, I admit you are here by opening my soup making season. Please comment if you’d like the recipe. Make Something Every Day
It has been a crazy busy where did this month go – October. For you as well? And what did I make to show for it? almost nothing.
THEN we went to COOMBS Goats on a Roof Country market and I got a 20 lb bag of beets. What more can a girl ask for?
After the lovely Nova Scotian Kate left from her awesome visit here.. I pickled beets last weekend! It was our first weekend alone as a couple in our new home and it seemed like just the right nesting thing to do. Below is a slideshow of the process. If you want the recipe, comment below.
It’s a lovely July Monday so I figured “why not bake a beet cake today?”. A totally gorgeous video was passed on to me by my lovely which inspired today’s Make Something Every Day. I’ve been a little remiss in postings but I assure you’ve I’ve got tons of Makes to post. My goal this week will be to empty my iPhoto onto my Blog so stay tuned…
Mom's notes on canning Pickled beets (my fav food ever), on the pages of Nana's recipe book
A wonderful package came in the mail last week, from my Dad (love you Daddsy). It contained a beautiful hardcover copy of one of my late Nana’s recipe book. It came the week I was canning. My fav food in the world remains my mom’s homemade pickled beets. And I believe her recipe is a variation of the one in this book. Thanks dad… another thoughtful and timely package.I attempted the beets last year and they were okay, not quite mom’s. I’m going to enjoy this book, this winter.
