I must admit I've never bought raw beets anywhere, France or the USA. They always look a little complicated to deal with. Nice market pictures lately - -where do you go to the market?
I love them cut up and tossed with a vinaigrette or roasted and mixed with crumbly goat cheese. They have a wonderful flavor!Olonzac is the market I go to most often. Only 5 minutes down the road. Carcassonne has a great one on Saturday mornings, but it's a 35 minute drive.Do you live in the center of Rodez?
Yum, beets! I was once served raw beets, shredded (grated) and dressed with a vinaigrette. They were delicious that way and I would never have thought of it.This was a French woman, by the way.
wcsI've had them that way too, and loved it! It is so rare to find the raw ones here. Do you ever see them up there?
This cracks me up: Variété - CrueHa ha ha! And I hate to admit it, but I only ever bought beets cuites, pelées, and sous-vide when I lived in France.
There is a vendor at the market in Saint-Aignan who has recently had raw beets for sale.We used to buy raw beets in San Francisco and cook them ourselves. One way is to boil them. Another is to wrap them in foil and roast them in the oven.Soon I want to make borscht. I guess I should buy raw beets at the Saturday-morning market for that.
I love beets. I wish I wasn't the only one who liked them. Well, my dogs like them.
Oh, Loulou..the recipe you give with the cheese or vinigrette sounds wonderful....I'll have to take some raw beets.
alison,I buy them that way sometimes, too. They're much easier to deal with!ken,I love them roasted! They get that sweet, caramelized flavor that is so wonderful.I've never tasted borscht...maybe I should try it sometime.colleen,I know. My husband isn't too keen but I think the dogs would share them with me, too.my melange,yes, try them! Especially with the goat cheese. Yum!
