Beautiful Veg

IMG-20130822-00528Pretty pretty beetroot and tomatoes, coloured beans, courgettes, cabbage, kale, peppers, aubergines, cucumber, salad bags, coloured carrots, broccoli, squash… The hit of the tasters at the farm shop last Sunday was definitely the Chioggia beetroot, with its gorgeous white and pink rings; we were all enjoying the sweet raw flavours too. You can tell Chioggia apart from normal (also lovely) beetroot, as the leaves are a paler green with a pink tinge to the edges, and the roots are pinker rather than burgundy. Pretty salads ahoy!
