I love buying beets, not because I love beets so much that I can’t wait to eat them, but rather that I can buy them and use them in a recipe when I feel like it…like 2 months later. They have such an amazing shelf life. The farmer I purchase my produce from sells gigantode bags of them for only a few dollars. I got this latest batch back at the beginning of September and I just used up the last of them today! How fantastic is that? So get on the beet band wagon because it’s a great place to be. Seriously.
My favorite beet soup is this one that I posted a while back. This one was THE recipe that convinced my husband that he could EAT beets once and a while. The soup is amazing. Since then it’s pretty much the only one I make. So I decided to stretch out of my comfort zone and try making a borscht recipe.
