Here are a few tips everyone should know.
They can be eaten hot or cold.
Cook them often.
They are very good for you.
Memories:
I remember back in the 70s we had went up to the family farm (in WI.) And after the beet fields were harvested. My sister-in-law and I followed the trucks in the field and hand bagged all the tiny beets left, for canning. We were in the field about 3hrs, picking the tiny beets up!
We canned about 6 gallons of beets!. Later my hands were red from canning. LOL
But they were the delish, and well worth me aching back!
Come winter...
