satisfy.

Also pickles. The intense flavor of pickles and

olives are satisfying and
also help with that bit of hunger craving at

snack time.


Oh, yeah! Pickled beets! Yummy, and a good

alternative to other snacks!

Aren't pickled beets kind of high in carbs because of the sugar?

Have you heard of Sugar beets...something they make white granular
sugar from. Well the 2 are related. Might as well eat a cup of white
flour.

Beets used to be only found in salad bars in canned form, and on
European menus, but with the culinary winds changing, this root is now
commonly seen in stateside grocery stores everywhere. This root
vegetable like its turnip cousin has two parts the edible root and
the edible green leaves.

There are too many varieties to list here, but with more than one type
of beet to choose from, why not try one of each if you get the chance.
This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, baked, steamed, pickled,
and served as a condiment or alongside soups and entrees.

Availability, Selection, Storage, and Preparation
Beets are available year-round because they thrive in more than 30
states with June through October being their peak season. These roots
come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so try a variety to find your
favorite.

Young beets, about an inch and a -inch diameter are fine textured,
tender, and excellent in salads. Medium and large size beets are good
for cooking; very large roots are too woody for eating regardless of
cooking method. Which ever size of beets you choose, look for smooth,
hard, uniformly round beets that are free of cuts and bruises.

Its best to store beets that have their tops chopped off in
individual plastic bags in the coolest part of the refrigerator. These
should last up to one week. The greens should be eaten as soon as
possible.

Wash and scrub the beets before cooking. Beets peel best after
cooking, so be sure to wear disposable gloves to minimize red stains
on hands.

Make Beets Part of Your 5 to 9 A Day Plan!
Season warm beets with margarine, lemon juice and fresh herbs.
Slice or julienne-cut chilled beets and toss with a vinaigrette
dressing.
Combine with sliced cucumbers; toss with your favorite dressing.
Bake or microwave for easy cooking that retains juices and flavor.
Add beets to salads and slaws for added color.

we use real sugar in the pickled beets

but it's a very small portion as compared to
'regular' recipes for pickling foods with (you do
NOT want to drink the 'juice' from these pickled
beets).............. mind you........ the kidlet
does want to drink it...... go figure :-)

i'll see if i can find the recipe that uses real
sugar to give you an idea of the
proportions........... (hubby makes this, it's his
flair not mine)
