Juet is pronounced like "foot" but with a "J".

My Great-Grandmother brought this recipe from Belgium when she happily graced our shores slightly before the 1900's. She, my grandmother and my mom loved to make it. My sibs and I even liked it cold and shared it with our friends.

For 2 people, use about 3 strips of bacon and 2 cloves garlic.

The was a delicious old world recipe. The bacon gives it great flavor. This could be eaten as a side or even a main dish. It's yummy! The Test Kitchen
