Red Beetsred beets

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY)

Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info

Red Cipollini Onionsred cipollini onions

From: Dagele Brothers Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Florida, NY)

These onions are thin-skinned and have more sugar than your average onion. This makes them incredible for roasting or caramelizing. Roasted whole in the oven or cooked in a little butter on the stove top, Cipollinis become soft and practically melt in your mouth. Those sugars caramelize and concentrate, leaving behind none of the astringent raw onion flavor. Even the onion-haters out there might be swayed! More info

Recipes Ideas:
Caramelized Onions
Spinach and Caramelized Onion Pizza
Caramelized Onion Quiche
Caramelized Onion and Penne Pasta
