ariel's making ... pickled beets
beets are a wonderful winter veggie. here's a recipe i made up for quick pickled beets.
6 organic beets, washed and sliced
3 cloves organic garlic, chopped
1 organic lemon
4 t. sea salt
2 t. anise seeds
place your washed and cut beets into a pot and boil until they are soft when pocked with a knife, but not falling apart ... about 10 to 15 minutes.
place the beets in a jar with the liquid you boiled them in, along with the other aromatic ingredients. let them soak in the brine for at least a day or two ... the longer you wait, the tastier they'll get.
we've been adding our pickled beets to salads, pasta dishes ... they're really a great little surprise in just about everything!
have fun pickling!
