Picking and cooking beets at The Little Farm


Here our oldest grandson Jack is holding some of the beets that we grew this season.  Cooking beets could not be simpler – cut off the greens ( we don’t care for them in salads but some folks do) and wash the beets thoroughly. Light the BBQ and put them on the top shelf to cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. Then peel – the skins will come off easily. Slice and eat! YEP! That easy – and they will have a lovely BBQ flavor.
