Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Teriyaki Beets

This evening I wanted to use some beets from the garden as a vegetable with dinner. I found this recipe that was a hit with everyone.

Teriyaki Beets from Winter Harvest Cookbook reprinted in from Asparagus to Zucchini: a Guide to Farm-Fresh Seasonal Produce by Madison Area Community Agriculture Coalition

12 small unpeeled beets
4 T butter
2 T honey
1 T minced fresh ginger
1 T soy sauce

Boil or steam the beets until almost tender. Rinse in cold water and cut into halves. (I quartered them.) Combine the other 4 ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat until the butter and honey are melted. Brush some sauce over beets and place on heated broiler pan. Broil 5-10 minutes until tender, basting frequently. Transfer to serving dish and pour remaining sauce over. (I put the beets into a foil pouch, poured on some sauce sealed it and put it on the grill. I poured over the remaining sauce before serving.)
