I feel like I’ve been away from the land of Dorie forever! Normally I make the recipes that don’t really appeal to me, but the past few weeks have been crazy around here, so I made the executive decision to take a break! Hopefully I didn’t miss out on too many new wonderful experiences!
I love beets. I think they’re delicious, and they’re not something I really make that often. In fact, I think the last time I prepared beets was for the last Dorie beet recipe! I wonder if beets would grow well in my south Texas garden? I would probably have to plant the garden first to see if beets would work? Maybe a Fall garden?!
I enjoyed this recipe. I think next time I might add a little bit more honey. I would have preferred a little more sweet to the lime’s sour. I was a little worried about how the dill would affect everything, but I was pleasantly surprised. Since it’s about 100º here every day now, I opted for the microwave cooking method, and that’s definitely the way to go! My other tip for working with beets is to wear gloves. Cooked beets have a way of staining your hands a lovely shade of crimson!
