The Jell-o Project: Beets Can't be Beat

For my beet Jell-o experiment I had the option of a sweet or savory Jell-o. I decided against Beet Jell-o with horseradish and went with this lovely concoction with cherry jello, pineapple and beets.

I love beets. I grow them in my garden and eat them until...well, I'll just leave it at that: I eat them.

So, naturally, I found nothing offensive about beet Jell-o. In fact, 3/5 of the family cleaned their plates of the beet Jell-o. Two licked them clean, but I'm not at liberty to say who.

Isaac took a small bite, as did Ethan, but neither was very impressed. They have no sense of adventure.

So that leaves only three people who are possible "beet plate-lickers." Hmmm...I love beets too! Yum!

That actually sounds really good! Did you use canned beets? I'd love to see the recipe too.

Hmmm...can't say I'm a huge fan of beets, but maybe if they were disguised enough in the cherry jello it would work...

Another great use of beets is in a smoothie. Add other fruit of course but it gives a beautiful color and doesn't taste bad either! Allyson
