Beets are one of those foods that I never get all that excited about. I think I still have childhood memories of eating cold, mushy beets from a can. I also don't like it when my bright red beet juice runs into other juice on my plate forming a palette of swirling food colors. But I've learned to enjoy beets as an adult. The reality is that pickled beets are a staple on almost every Amish wedding food or church table. And when we've grown beets in our garden, I've always enjoyed those.
But, holy cow, last night when I opened the jar of Amish-grown and pickled baby beets from The Amish Buggy I was blown away. Yes, this is a sponsored post but, no, I'm not just fawning over the beets because of that. These beets were REALLY good: small, flavorful, with just the right balance of crispness. Man, I could have eaten the entire jar. They tasted like candy.
I tried to get Aster to partake in the beets but no luck. SIGH, 3 year olds.
If you want order your own jar of Amish beets pickled and packed by a family in Arthur, Illinois, I don't think you'd be disappointed, I think you'd love them! Click here to order.
Meanwhile, related recipes:
just an fyi - the label on the beets say Newton, IL, which is quite a ways south of Arthur, IL. It is southeast of Effingham, at least an hour away
Thanks, Carol, the beets are pickled and packed by an Amish family in Arthur and sold through Arndt's Fudgery in Newton. I mentioned that in a post last week but I probably should mention that in all posts just to eliminate confusion.
