Culinary ideas with red beets incredibly useful vegetable. There is hardly any doubt in this. But I have noticed that when it is in its season – the first chapters are in late summer and are lasting throughout the winter, we simply do not know what to do. Salad will do maybe, but what else.
It does not cook like a parsnip or gulch – everywhere there is a potato, we can put on them, it makes no sense to freeze it like celery – to soup cubes. What to do with beet – some ideas from us?
We are great fans of beets and boldly experiment recipes with it. Although at first glance it does not allow much freedom in cooking, the fact is that it is useful and should not deny it – especially in the seasons and in the winter when you will completely fresh fruits and vegetables.
If you have more beets and a cellar, you can keep beets for the whole winter so you do not buy. You have to prepare a box of sand and a few pounds of clean finger. Heads are selected, not too large, not injured. Their leaves are cut at 3-4 cm from the base and the root is also left a few centimeters. They are placed at a distance from each other on the flattened sand and if there is more, they are arranged pyramidally to hang the root freely.
Between the heads, they are buried with soil and covered with 10 cm of soil. On cold they will last a long time. If you have a garden, you do not have to remove them, but to cut the leaves, to cover with straw at the first cold. The next time you cover the straw with your finger and mark the heads to make it easier without getting it all up.
Beetroot is very useful for juice.
If you have a good drier sure to make juice with beets – it’s sweet, helpful and combines well with carrot juice, apple, celery, lemon, orange. It is advisable not to drink clean and in small quantities. His properties are strong.
