Another Kitchen Play recipe today! Sorry- I’m on a kick. The July menu features Aunt Nellie’s whole pickled beets, which is great for me because I love beets, and I love pickled things. I was first intrigued by Megan’s Cookin’s apple beet goat cheese spread because of its color– bright fushia! Since I prefer savory foods over sweet ones, I omitted the candied peacans, upped the goat cheese from Megan’s original recipe, and added a clove of garlic as well as salt & pepper to taste. We ate the dip on pitas and tortilla chips all weekend long.
