Harvest Monday ... and Pickled Beets

I'm joining other bloggers over at Daphne's Dandelions as we share our weekly harvests...it's fun to see what others are harvesting and what they are cooking up with it...check it out!

The garden is producing more than we can eat now so I am busy canning, dehydrating and freezing. Yesterday I pulled some potatoes and carrots to go with our chicken piccata dinner ...



I also pulled a bunch of my chioggia beets ...


and turned them into the prettiest pickled beets I've ever seen :) 


I used the recipe on Cindy's (SB Canning) web site for the beets.  You can find it here.

Enjoy!

    1. These are "Mokum" carrots. It's the first time I've grown them. At first I was disappointed with them because they took a long time to size up, but now I love how fat and straight they grow. This one is a keeper.
