Red Beets are not a very popular vegetable, but they have moved up a couple of notches during the past year.
There are many ways to use red beets, but for the Eastern European cooks, the ever famous Red Beet Borscht is one of the more popular dishes prepared from red beets. Red beets salads are very often used as a side dish with the main course meal, in many Polish and Ukrainian cuisines.
The Easter Basket of special foods (described below) is arranged on Holy Saturday and taken to church, where a special blessing ceremony with prayers and sprinkling with Holy Water, is performed by the parish priest. The blessed food is served on Easter Sunday Brunch, once the fast is broken after the morning Easter Liturgy.
I will list each harvested vegetable individually, and link it to my favorite recipes posted previously, for your cooking convenience and pleasure.
