Beets with Herbs & Butter

It's the end of July which tells you that most of my produce is ready in my garden.

This week we have been enjoying beets.

You either love them or hate dislike them.

Here are some scrumptious ways to eat fresh and colorful beets.

Raw ~ Slice them up and serve them with a sprinkle of chile and lemon.

Soups ~ Make a traditional Ukrainian Borscht. 

Roasted ~ This is my all time favorite.  They are tender and juicy.

In a Salad ~ Today beets are making a statement in many salads. 

Pickled ~ Pickled beets have been around forever. Enjoy the tangy vinegar taste.

Desserts ~ yes, you can even enjoy a velvety beet cake.
