Recipes / Sides

  • 6 medium beets, cleaned with 1-inch stem remaining
  • 2 large shallots, peeled
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, frenched
  • 1 cup tarragon wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss the beets, shallots, rosemary, and olive oil. Place into a foil pouch and roast in the oven for 1 hour.

After the beets have cooled, remove their skin. Arrange in jars alternating layers with the onion. In a small pot boil the vinegar, salt, sugar, and water, and pour over the beets. Put tight lids on the jars and refrigerate for 3 to 7 days before serving.
