This has become a favorite of ours, shared by our dear friend Barbie! :)
Boil the beets until soft. Let cool and peel off the skin. Chop up into small chunks.
Mix the beets in a bowl with some apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar, and a little olive oil.
Add some jam to sweeten - raspberry or apricot recommended.
Add some granny smith apples chopped up small like the beets. (the sour of the granny smith is key to the recipe).
Add some currants and nuts (pecans or walnuts) if you're so inclined. Mix it all up. you can even out the sweet-salty balance to your taste using maple syrup or soy sauce.
Enjoy as a lovely side dish!
