New Recipes with Beets

I’m embarrassed to admit that before Joy of Kosher’s #GoForTheGold’s campaign, I had never tried a Gold’s product. Surprising, yes. I knew they made horseradish, but since gefilte fish is a rarity in my cooking I never used it. Nevertheless, I was up for the challenge of using one of their many condiments in my cooking and I picked that purple jar of Borscht.

Borscht is a Jewish Eastern European soup, but I knew there were so many other things you can make with the beet mixture. In a simple jar you have flavorful bits of beets you don’t need to peel or cook. They made the perfect base for a savory appetizer and a sweet dessert.


Beet and Goat Cheese Crostini with Caramelized Onions and Chives 

One of my favorite flavor combinations is beets and goat cheese. The hint of sweetness from the beets complements the creamy, distinct flavor of the cheese. In this appetizer, I added the caramelized onions and hint of chives for a truly outstanding hors d’oeuvre.

Beet and Pineapple Granita

For a simple way to stay cool this summer, try a refreshing granita. It has a smooth, velvety texture similar to sorbet and packs a lot of flavor in each bite. Try this tropical combination with the lime and pineapple, you won’t even know there are beets inside!
