DELICIOUS BEET RELISH
BEETS . . . OUT OF THE FREEZER & TO THE TABLE AS RELISH
Our freezer is still loaded with some of last years vegetables. Every year I have a big garden and we always have enough for the summer and the rest preserved until the next year’s garden is producing.
But then there are always some vegetables that I freeze too many of; like frozen beets, cucumbers, green beans, apple sauce. Due to covid, we stay home a lot so I have been spending time trying to use up some of these nutritious preserves. We are actually saving $$ too!
BEETS TURNED INTO DELICIOUS RELISH
Today I took out 3 (2 cup) packages of beets. One will be to cook & enjoy for dinner with butter salt & pepper.
The other 2, I cooked to add the juice to my breakfast drink so I will share how I have strained out the juice & then used the pulp to make a delicious beet relish.
After all, beet pulp still has plenty of fibre and many nutrients! Why should I throw these nutrients out?
I had often put the pulp that was left into the compost.
Today I figured, enough is enough, I will create a recipe with this pulp!
Because the result was a huge success, this relish recipe is on the website as well under pickles. Hope you will make some & enjoy it too, just go to www.winnieswinningways.ca
BREAKFAST BEET JUICE
I mentioned often that I don’t add milk to my granola at breakfast so every 2 weeks I make a batch of juice that will be in the fridge to replace milk on my cereal. The recipe is on my website too!
Make the most of everything in your garden & freezer . . . and save $$ too! Winnie
