Fall Canning class, fresh beets with green topsAs the fall season inches closer to winter it is nice to add variety to your menus by considering what fresh vegetables are in season. In addition to your local tailgate market or roadside produce stand, a great place to look for what is In Season is the NC 10% Campaign Website. Beets, one of my favorite fall vegetables is locally in season in November and December. Because beets grow underground they can be left in the ground  and harvested during colder months.The red color in vegetables such as beets contains antioxidants that lower the risk of developing different types of cancer, protect against heart diseases, and improve brain health. Both the root of the vegetable and it’s green leafy tops are edible. The beet greens can be sautéed with onion and garlic for a healthy and warm side dish. I love to roast beets and serve them with reduced balsamic vinegar with feta cheese over a bowl of mixed greens.

A great way to preserve fresh beets to enjoy year round is to pickle and can them. The Family & Consumer Sciences program at N.C. Cooperative Extension in Haywood County will be offering a Late Fall Pickled Beet Canning Class on Monday December 5, 2022 from 10 a.m. – 1p.m. The cost of this hands-on class will be $4.00. Register Online via Eventbrite for the class or call 456-3575 for more information.
