You gotta' love 'em.....BEETS!
I love beets!
In France you can find beets already pre-prepared in the market. You use a giant pickle fork to neatly grab one and put it in your plastic sack, keeping your hands from being stained. You can also find them vacu-packed. These aren't your Grannies pickled beets! Sweet and earthy!
I do a beet chutney that accompanies a goat cheese stuffed chicken breast......the chutney has jalapanos & fresh cilantro & lime juice.. it is a good combo! The herbed goat cheese oozes out of the chicken breast, hmmmmmm........I might make it this coming weekend!
At the Ferme de Gally, they have some gorgeous raw beets right now. I wash the beet, wrap in foil and let the oven bake them till tender. Then comes the messy part, the peeling.
I am using a terrific recipe from Epicuious that is featured in the above photo, perfect for the upcoming holidays.
Beets are always a part of our fall table!
