Theme: You Can't Beat the Beet!

Seems people have a love-hate relationship with the beet. We have been very successful in turning haters into lovers by recommending that people try roasted beets or shredded raw beets. However, if you're a committed “no way, no how am I eating beets" person, we have an alternative for you…hair dye!

All you have to do is boil the beets until tender, then remove them from the now very red water. Place the beets in a plastic bag and give them to a friend. Let the beet juice cool and add to a partially empty shampoo bottle. Wash your hair and let the shampoo stay in for a few minutes. Look in the mirror and convince yourself you really see a difference…it is supposed to work.

All the techniques we have found involve washing your hair after beet infusion, which frankly doesn’t make a lot of sense to us. Maybe the best technique would be to just dump the pot of beet juice on your head (but wouldn’t that turn your face red?). Alternative: try it on someone else first. Should you give it a go, send us before and after pictures and we will send you more beets!

Red Beets
Sweetland Farm (OG)

Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more... but don't boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma.

Sear in a pan or slow roast with garlic and herbs in the oven. Either way you'll love these beauts! They're also spectacular in soups and chowders, mashed up, or turned into a potato salad. Ever tried baked potatoes that look like this?!

Marolda Farms (IPM)

Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
