It's been ages since I've eaten beets. An occasional slice or two from a salad bar. A red beet egg at a picnic. A few pieces from a jar at a meal.
Zippy and I picked up abunch of fresh beets at Appletree a few weeks back. But I forgot (or never knew) the impact of red beets on ones.....er.....effluvia. So I spent a day or so pretty sure I was dying of colon cancer or some other digestive tract disease that creates bloody red stools.
Silly me. We made a batch of beets again last night, and this time I am ready.
