Abundant Beets

Do you have more beets than you know what to do with? Why not make orange and beet salad?

Pierce washed beets and roast in the oven for 45 min - 1 hour, until soft.
Cool, peel off skin and cut into chunks.
Mix with orange pieces, goat cheese, chives and parsley.
Mix oil, honey, cinnamon and balsamic vinegar and add to salad.



  1. Hi Rachelle,
    Thanks for the comments on my food blog, I'm happy you enjoy the recipes and pictures  To be honest I don't use a fancy camera - I think the one I have is this one :

    I got it at Blacks about 2 1/2 years ago for about $200.00. One of the settings on the camera is a food setting which works well for me. I do find it hard to take nice pictures indoors since I cook at night and by the time I get around to capturing a photo all the natural light is gone.

    Try taking the picture from a few different angles, sometimes I hold a dish up high under the most powerful light I can find in my house in an attempt to get a nice shot. lol

    I really enjoy your blog and think it's fantastic that you work on a farm! I look forward to more posts so I can live vicariously through your farm experiences.


  2. Thanks for stopping by Caitlin! Did you make the connection that I work on THE farm from which you get your CSA box?
    PS I am even more impressed by your photos now that I see you have a fairly regular camera. Amazing!
