In the fall I planted beets for the first time, specifically for making Beet Jelly. But then I discovered a few more uses for the beet that I'd like to share with you....Like sauteed Beet Greens, and a wonderful cake that I'll be adding later this week.........so stay tuned!

|I'm not crazy about pickled beets so I use my beets in a few different ways. First I harvest the the tender leaves to make|
Sauteed Beet Greens
Then I make beet juice for jelly and beet puree for baking.
Peel and quarter the beets. Wear gloves if you're concerneed about ruining your manicure they will stain. Place beets in a large heavy pot and cover them water.(2"above the beets). Then boil until fork tender. Drain the juice into a large glass measure bowl.(juice will stain plastic) If you have less than the jelly recipe called for add water. If you have more than called for make a double batch or freeze the extra juice and use later. I pureed my beets in my handy Ninja blender and froze them in 1 cup batches to use later in my cake recipe, which I will share with you later this week.
