This is a two-part experiment with beets. After missing my local farmer’s market for the last month due to traveling, I was very happy to finally go yesterday. It was a little overwhelming to see so much produce there since there wasn’t as much in season yet when I last went. I loaded myself up with as much as I could carry home, and also stopped by the farm stand around the corner from my house to grab a few more things. Armed with my bounty, what to make? When I experiment with ingredients, usually my final result is not at all like what I initially intended, sometimes great, mostly just so-so. In this case, I was pleasantly surprised.
