Do you like to eat beets?
The beets were delivered in the farm box today.
I thought I’d prepare them for supper. After I cooked them on top of the stove for about a half an hour, I saw the pan of beautiful crimson liquid and quickly retrieved a skein of ecru wool yarn which was meant to be dyed. I’d received it from a woolswapper, Cheryl, and once thought I’d experiment and dye it with Kool-Aid. She’d sent me a skein of Kraemer Textiles undyed yarn. I soaked it in water snd vinegar first and lowered it into the pan. Covered it and simmered the pan a bit. I dyed just the one skein of yarn in beet juice and a bit of white vinegar, rinsed it in cool water and hung to dry in the bathroom. Cant wait to knit with it.
But I digress. Beets? To eat. Yes or no?
