Beets My Heart

Raven Higheagle


For some reason, beets frighten people. So do turnips. And Parsnips. Why you ask? They've simply gotten a bad rap!!! The combination of these root vegetables with cream and some simple seasoning makes a really wonderful side to roast pork or chicken or even a standing rib roast.
Did I mention that they are vitamin-packed too?
