A Beet Affair

I entered the world of savory tarts with this little gem, carrying in hand a bundle of perfect organic beets (again, from my Fresh Picks delivery). What does one do with beets? It was an adventurous journey, consisting of multiple steps and then misreading the actual baking time—we ended up eating far later than usual. I tend to steer away from intense recipes like this, but all in all it was a good time. John took a peek and (hopefully?) wondered if we were having cherry cheesecake for dinner. “Aw gee, newcomer to this foreign land,” I responded, “it's Beet Tart!”

It was surprisingly tasty, and we both went back for seconds. There was even enough for lunches the next day...and we licked the plates clean (nasty habit, I know). Beet tart, anyone?

Ah, the pleasures of beets! The tart looks great. You should try Russian salad sometime, I'll try to find the recipe for you :)

Happy cooking!
