Nov 2011

The season for farmers markets...

Farmers are busy these days, harvesting before the ground is covered in snow. Of course they may have missed the boat in New York where they've already got a white cover. Time for us all to grab some roots and start simmering our fave warming soups.
As usual in November, I invite you to remember Kurt Vonnegut on his November 11th birthday. He would have welcomed some beets in 1945 when he was a prisoner in Dresden during the devastating fire-bombing. Let's all curl up with one of his books and slurp some beet soup.

Send me your fave beets recipe, whether soup or something else. Here's one I like that adds some other roots...onions, garlic & ginger: Beet & Ginger Soup Recipe
