The Beauty of the Beets.
Jane Grigson referred to beets as a “bossy” vegetable, due to their powerful colour, which may permeate all corners of the kitchen. Yet it’s not just the colour that holds power, their healing properties are mighty and when combined with culinary flair, may provide superb warming menu ideas.
Beets have strong detoxifying properties, as they are high in chlorine, which assists in the cleansing of the liver, kidneys and bloodstream. They are also rich in potassium, which balances the metabolism. Beets nourish blood, tonify the heart, calm the spirit and nervousness lubricate the intestines and cleanse the liver.
