Mimi is holding up my find at the Farmer's Market during my trip with Claire, fresh beets. I listened to 3 seperate people rave about roasted beets with rosmary. Having only had those gross purple beets from a can, I thought they were exaggerating their claims. Yet having eating roasted fresh beets was incredible. It really reminded me forcefully how much I adore the "Farm to Table" movement. Great cooking is simple if I start with fresh, local food. Hurrah for the West Virginian Farmer!
