They are colorful, very good for you and their sweet earthiness is unique and versatile. People enjoy them in salads, soups, sandwiches, pickled and even in smoothies. For the Northern climates, beets are a staple. They grow well in cold weather and as with most root vegetables, can survive, even thrive in light frosts. Most Northern communities enjoy some variation of beet soup and Poland is no exception. I like the simplistic nature of their typical beet soup recipe. Just a few ingredients, nothing that overpowers the beauty of the beet.
I keep a jar of rendered fat in my fridge. I love cooking onions with it or frying potatoes, adding a bit more flavor and depth, not to mention, it’s free. This is a tip I picked up from my parents. Rendered fat has a high smoke point and carries on the flavor of the meat it came from. Bacon fat is the most common in my house but I am starting to use more rendered chicken fat, also known as Schmaltz. I keep all of the fat in the same jar in my fridge. Oh and duck fat is cooks gold! Give it a try.
