I’ve a vegetable and fruit package from a local farmer in my neighborhood. He doesn’t use any toxins and grows food in season. That means in winter a lot of cabbage, but also beets. And we (all of us) don’t like beets. But my personal challenge is to not throw anything away.
I’ve finally found something for my beets that tastes good. I’m using the beets for my home made beef stock.
Normally I would use carrots, but beets are also very sweet. So I replaced the carrots with the beets and it tastes delicious.
By roasting the meat and vegetables in the oven, they will get enormous flavor. When adding it to the stock it will give this flavor to the soup. Therefor you’ve got a full and flavorful stock, which can be used as a base in soups and sauces.
