a recipe involving beets that i recommend:
pink herring salad
with beets, green apple, baby potatoes & sour cream
1 lb beets, cooked [diced]
2 6 oz. jars pickled herring, drained and cut up
1 granny smith apple, diced
1/2 lb baby potatoes, cooked and cut in half
1/2 med. red onion, sliced thinly
1/4 c. white vinegar
2 tbsp sugar [or more]
salt to taste
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 c sour cream or whipping cream
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced in quarters [optional]in a large bowl mix the cream with the sugar, vinegar, and pepper. add the remaining ingredients and salt to taste. marinate overnight. garnish with the egg slices.
i also spent some time bread baking and really have to catch up on my testing. i am far behind. life in general & the craziness of the holidays put a damper on my progress. below is the wholegrain loaf i made. i liked this one quite a bit and was skeptical at the beginning as the bread was made by combining two fermented doughs. that in itself is not unusual .... what bothered me was that the whole grains dough was very loose and not very doughlike. it was a combination of cooked brown rice, coarse cornmeal [which sent me running all around trying to find], ground flaxmeal, oat bran & some other things which i cannot recall at the moment.
