My coffee and I headed out to the garden early again this morning. A lovely meander together...observing and planning. As we wandered I noticed a bunch of beetroot that had been quite happily sitting basking in the sun. I don't remember when I planted these but they were exploding from the soil and asking to be pickled!
Kobi gave the piggies the leaves as they haven't been getting much green lately and the rest came inside. I googled (as you do) 'pickled beetroot recipe' and the first recipe to pop up was from someone that I know of and haven't had the chance to meet (a craft date is on the horizon!!), Kate Ulman. If you haven't heard of Kate, she has a very very beautiful blog called Foxs Lane. Her honesty, warmth, and love just oozes from her posts and she is also an incredible photographer. A stunning combination. So I couldn't help but followed Kate's recipe.(Thank you Kate!)
I love so much that my poor neglected garden is still showing little bits of life and love.
These little jars of beetroot will be another reminder.
