PRODUCT: Aunt Nellie’s Baby Beets

We love Aunt Nellie’s beets: whole beets, sliced beets, pickled beets, Harvard beets. The company is the largest provider of jarred beets.

And now, the brand has introduced Baby Whole Pickled Beets, sized just right for one bite. They’re available nationwide and a great boon to anyone who likes to make hors d’oeuvre and small bites.

  • Serve as a side dish straight from the jar.
  • Make easy appetizers. Skewer a baby beet with a mozzarella ball and a basil leaf, with a cube of cheese and a cornichon or olive, with a scallop or shrimp, or with tortellini (recipe below).
  • Toss into salads.
  • Garnish a martini.
  • Add to roasted vegetables, soups and other dishes.
    This recipe makes about 36 appetizers, 2 appetizers per serving.

    1. DRAIN beets well; discard liquid.
