Pickled Beets

These beets can be used as a pickle or dress them up as a salad. Add cut-up fruit such as oranges, apples, pears, add feta cheese, and an oil mixed with the juice.


Irene is not only talented with her canning but has a business, Irene's Encaustic and Mixed Media Art. You can see more of her art on Facebook and at LoveNorthernBC.com.
