BEETS! ME!

Beets are sweet in nature. You really have to give these red (not just red but yellow and orange as well as striped) beauties a chance. Beets are wonderful chopped onto a potato salad which adds a nice pinkish color, or baked whole for an earthy, sweet treat into a cake, or roasted to bring out even more sweetness. Beets are very cleansing to the body and build strong blood. They strengthen the heart, sedate the spirit, improve circulation, cleanse the liver and gallbladder, (Try my Cleansing Cocktail) moisten the intestines, and promote menstruation. Combined with carrots, beets regulate hormones during menopause. Anti-cancerous. High in silicon and iron making it great for those with Anemia. Beet Greens are very different from beets and behave like another vegetable entirely.  Their intense flavor goes perfectly with the sweetness of the beet root and they can often be served together.  Very young beet greens can be eaten raw in salads, but mature beet greens must be cooked in order to soften their flavor. Be sure to cook the stems until nearly done, then add leaves and continue cooking, either steaming or sautéing. These edible leaves offer protein, calcium, fiber, beta carotene, vitamins A and C, and some B vitamins. Do cook uncovered over high heat, allowing some of the oxalic acid in the greens to escape, this is a good thing, since oxalic acid inhibits the absorption of calcium contained in the greens. Enjoy!

Every Easter my Mom would make this potato salad. This is not exactly hers but my version. Don't wait for Easter make it for your next picnic! Do use new potatoes if you like them firm but I myself like my potatoes soft so I find myself using russets, and if you don't want a precise cut salad with firm potatoes use russet. I find myself rough cutting the russets potatoes because they do fall apart and add to the creaminess of the dressing. FYI-You can toss the cubed, cooked, still warm, potatoes with the vinegar or beet juice and let set till cool even up to over night. Then add remaining ingredients.

Root vegetables (with the exception of potatoes and carrots) are some of the most overlooked and under appreciated food stuffs around. But these nutritional storehouses are hidden treasures worthy of your notice. Not only are they available in winter when other vegetables are hard to find, they are also very inexpensive. Experiment with turnips, rutabagas, beets and parsnips, and learn what they have to offer in taste and versatility. Rutabaga (also known as swede) is an accidental vegetable -- the result of a chance hybridization of turnips and cabbage. Like carrots, they're low in sodium and high in vitamin C. The flavor of all root vegetables will be enhanced by selecting fresh, firm produce (preferably organically grown) and storing it carefully. Turnips and potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place out of the refrigerator. The rest of these roots will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week. From Dr. Weil

Want to kick up a ham sandwich, top and deviled egg, use on a roast beef, in a pot roast or make a cocktail sauce with it. Use fresh firm roots. PLEASE be advised Do this in a well ventilated area or better yet outdoors. Your eyes will burn as even my skin on my face started to feel the heat. If you don't feel heat your horseradish is old. Don't bother!
