Bad Baby Beets: At Least They Looked Pretty

Sunday, 04 Jan 2009


I was really excited when I found Melissa’s Baby Beets, pre-packaged peeled, steamed baby beets at the grocery store.  I love beets on a salad or sliced up with goat cheese (yes, I’m on a big goat cheese kick this week).  So today I made a nice little plate of beets with goat cheese, sprinkled with olive oil, fresh dill and pepper, and surrounded with cornichons (little French pickles) and pearl onions.  I was looking forward to this nice snack accompanied by a glass of red wine, but alas, the beets were a bust.  They were dried out and just didn’t taste good at all.  At least I had a good glass of wine.  See the disappointing beets below.
