Beets and Burr Gherkins…

October 25, 2016

This week at the markets Mary will be sampling Burr Gherkin cucumbers and pickles.  Burr Gherkins are funny little spiky cucumbers that hide under a ground cover (pictured above), but are delightful to eat raw, cooked or pickled.  Cotton Country has been pickling these for awhile.  You can cook them as you would a zucchini.

We will also have beautiful bunches of beets, including Gold, Chioggia (striped), and Red beets.  The tops are excellent for sautéing, in fact, Bob likes beet tops better than sautéed spinach.

Come stop by tomorrow!
