I love beets. I really do. I love their earthy flavour, I love their colour, I love it all. Today we went down to Buskerfest but there were so many people, and I hate crowds-especially in full sun, that I trickled off and bought a bunch of produce at the St. Lawrence Market. Their market is the best, for real, maybe it’s not all 100km produce, but there’s so much to chose from. I bought a box of golden beets, and we had traditional red ones at home, so I decided to make refrigerator pickled beets, using this recipe.
They tasted pretty good, but seemed to be missing something, so at the last minute, as they were cooling, I added a large pinch of ground cloves (I would have put whole ones in but didn’t have any) and a couple peppercorns.
Pretty! I am also in the process of making 8-ball zucchini stuffed with quinoa…
