But, but mom, I don’t like beets.
A catch-phrase from my youth and I have no idea why, other than pickled beets were a staple of 1970s funky glassware along with pickled cucumbers and pickled onions.
I had some chicken pate and beets on crackers the other evening as an homage to my Danish carpenter friends, who would eat endless amounts of the stuff on rye bread.
I was chatting with a friend the other day, and we were remarking on the quality control from the ladies watching the beets in the past, to sophisticated glass and metal detectors in the present.
One of my better on-farm food safety tips for processing vegetables in Ontario about 2002 was, if you’re gonna shoot groundhogs, pick up the damn shell so it doesn’t end up in someone’s meal.
Sainsbury’s is recalling a batch of its Sliced Beetroot sold in jars as a “precautionary measure” because the product may contain small pieces of glass.
The presence of glass made the product unsafe to eat and presented a safety risk, according to the recall notice issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
In its recall notice, the FSA advised consumers to return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
Sainsbury’s said it had identified the possible presence of small pieces of glass in one batch of its Sliced Beetroot product.
