Recently a friend sent me a text that said, “Do you want some fresh beer from the garden?” My initial reaction was, “why, yes, I would love some fresh beer” and “I’d even drink some beer while in the garden” and “what are you raising in your garden, hops & barley?” But, alas, it was a typo, and he was actually offering fresh beets. Hmmm, beets. The only beets that I was familiar with were what comes out of a can, and smells not too appealing to me. But, I’m willing to try most anything once (within reason!), and I was off to try to cook beets. As you’ll see from all the food I made that night, I was hedging my bets, and not so sure they’d turn out to be something my family would eat. 🙂
Since I was grilling T-bone steaks that night, I decided to grill the beets.
Added a little butter (surely butter makes everything good?), and wrapped them in foil.
I put the foil pack on the top shelf of my grill, and just let them cook while the steak was grilling.
I was pretty pleased with how the beets turned out. The texture was very similar to the artichokes that I steamed the night before.
