May 29, 2019

These delicious beets are simple and show the true essence of the vegetable. You can keep them ready in a jar and serve by themselves, over lettuce, or with a scoop of creme fraiche, like we dressed them here.\

Learn to make these and more in our Using Your CSA class Wednesday July 17th at 6:30pm.


3 beets, boiled
1 clove garlic
½ cup pumpkin seeds, candied
½ cup olive oil
⅓ cup cider vinegar
½ cup creme fraiche


Boil beets for 45 minutes. When they are done and cooled, the skins should slip off with a little pressure from your hands. Cut off root and and cut the beets into small cubes. Place oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt in a glass mason jar or bowl. Add beets and chill. Serve the beets cold and top with a scoop of creme fraiche and  pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
