Rerun: Beet Risotto
I visited the farmers' market yesterday at lunch and bought these beets. They're not the softball-sized ones I can find at the store, but these were smaller and even a little sweeter. They're one of my favorite farmers market finds. I buy them every year at least once.
The best part? They smelled like earth. You don't get the fresh from the ground smell from the supermarket.
I grew up eating canned beets but fresh are best. I used a few of them in Beet Risotto last night for dinner. If you think you don't like beets, you might try them in risotto. Everything is better with rice.
