Beet Greens

Beet greens  are similar to spinach leaves. Again the dark leaf is a good indication of how many vitamins they contain.

They are high in iron, calcium, vitamin c, Protein, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and Zinc. They are also a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Eat beet greens in a simple sandwich of butter, salt, and steamed beet greens on a bun. Or you could  just boil them and season with garlic, oil, salt, and some lemon juice. Such as the recipe here.

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.
