My grandparents have always had a garden, on the farm and still today after moving to town. Every year they grow lots of beets and although I have different ways I enjoy this root vegetable this simple ORIGINAL recipe is still a favourite! I have slightly altered it with the type of sugar and vinegar but it is still true and original to my grandmothers recipe! Enjoy!
- 8 - 10 Beets & Leaves Chopped
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Palm Sugar (coconut palm sugar is low on the glycemic index, so I prefer to use it because it won't spike your blood sugar)
Combine all ingredients into a sauce pan or slow cooker. Cover with water and add the Apple Cider and Palm Sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until beets are tender. Serve immediately or can in mason jars. Now back in the day they added a drizzle of farm fresh cream to make a Borscht. Once in a while I like to enjoy that delight, it reminds me of being a kid visiting my grandparents farm! Enjoy!
*** Juicy Tip - Beets are high in vitamin C which helps to strengthen your immune system. They also contain fiber, and essential minerals like potassium, and manganese. A single serving of beets can boost your energy and help to lower your blood pressure. Eating beets long-term helps prevent cancer, and reduce arthritic pain. Live Juicy!
