I have had a really enjoyable day at home today.  I tried pickling beetroot for the first time and it turned out just great!   Unfortunately, I had only planted a small amount of beetroot, so my first attempt of pickling only yielded one jar … but wow it brought me such satisfaction.  Next time I’ll know to plant copious amounts of beetroot, since it grows really easily, doesn’t seem to be worried by pests, the green tops make great chicken feed and the pickling process is pretty simple.  I tasted one of the cooked beets with a little pickling…
