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.
