This winter from our CSA we have gotten so many beets I can't believe it. We didn't get many during the regular season and I was a little bummed. Now they are making up for it, I tell ya! And some of these beets are huge and gorgeous! And because they are a cold storage vegetable, even if they get a little soft in the fridge they are still just fine. I'm thinking of doing some refrigerator beet pickles with some of them. I did some last fall from this recipe but didn't like how they turned out so "clove-y".
I have a batch of bread rising right now. I've been using my high altitude book a lot the past few weeks and have been so happy with the results. When I milled the flour for this bread, the flour smelled a little grassy. I hope the bread doesn't turn out like that or my chicken will have a fabulous snack later!
