    Those are definitely the best. But, we don't garden or can/jar. My G'ma does, but lives an hr. away.

    I tried pickled beets for the first time in the South. Yum. I didn't know whether they were a southern thing, but I hope not, because I'd like to run into some again.

    Is pickled beets the same as pickled beetroot? If so then I love them!

    Yeah, the same. :) i've never understood the reasoning behind calling it beetroot. It's a mouthful! Lol

    Maybe because the beet is, after all, the root of the beet plant.

    My grandmother who grew her own beets, made a marvellous dish that used the whole plant.
    The beets were cooked as normal then she'd creme the greens - put everything in a casserole dish and bake. The greens left over went into a fresh salad.

    Maybe to differentiate the different beets such as beetroot and sugar beet? Who knows eh!

    I had a pretty successful shopping trip.

    One lot to be eaten ASAP. However, I couldn't find any "blooming..thal" Christmas puds!

    Cashew Thai Chicken and fried rice followed by deep fried Mars Bars for us tonight.

    I pickle my own beets, but the wife makes me do it outside on the BBQ side burner 'cause of the mess it can make!

    I love beet greens. They are tastier than spinach.
