  2. Carole, I sure like pickled turnip on a grilled cheese sandwich and pickled cucumber on a burger, but I've never tried pickled beets on a burger. They are delicious on liver pate in a Danish open-faced sandwich as well.

    I'm linking up a bunch of beet recipes, but my favorite remains what I ate for brunch today--sauteed beet greens, with a fried egg and some sourdough toast. I'm so delighted to see all these recipes, because those yummy beet greens are attached to giant beets, and I'm always looking for new ideas.
    Thanks!

  3. I linked in a few beet recipes. They are one of my favourite ingredients (and I hated them pickled as a kid!) I didn't have a change of heart until I cooked a fresh beet for myself a few years ago, and then I realized what I was missing. I also love them shaved thinly, raw, as a salad.

  32. Hi Carole.... I made a blunder in the first link.... missed out the name of the post. It should be Beetroot Ice cream.... what a shame! I linked the next one, think it's correct..... Beet Chocolate Cake

  36. Good Afternoon Carole, I love beetroot and I especially love it roasted. I have added my roasted beetroot with pasta. I have been told this is an unusual combination, but I have to say, I love it.
    I am now going to take a look at some other recipes.... I am interested in the Chocolate Beetroot cake as I have heard of using beetroot in cakes, but I have never tried it myself.
    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to meet other bloggers.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  43. I shared the recipe for my raspberry beet jelly. It is so delicious and you never know it is made with beets. I can the beets and use the juice for jelly. Great for jelly biscuits, toast, and even good for using inside a homemade donut. Mmmm!
