It was time to pull up the rest of the beets and use up 1/2 bottle of buttermilk. This is the last batch of beets and when I get back from vacation in August, I will start the fall planting, that will include more beets.
This is my favorite way to eat beets and very easy. Steam or boil or bake beets until tender. Skin, then throw in the blender with buttermilk and some ice. Blend until smooth. Once it's all blended, season with dill, salt and pepper. Today I chopped up some fresh dill and added it along with the dried dill.
