My good friend Vickie Newton shared this delightful recipe for preserving pears. It’s so simple, and the finished product lets the flavor of the pears truly shine. It’s absolutely divine over ice cream or other desserts.
When shaved beets meet a honey and vinegar marinade, they are twice as nice! This sweet and simple salad adds the flavors of carrots and radishes for extra crunch. Mix it all with fresh parsley, and you’ll have a healthy snack or an appetizing first course to share with friends.
Get the most nutrition out of your homegrown beets by slicing them thinly and tossing them with a homemade dressing. This salad takes the flavor a step further by adding the crunch of pine nuts and the creaminess of feta cheese. Enjoy!

This recipe was created by chef Alexis Jones. As a child, her palate was heavily influenced by the cuisine of New Orleans. She uses only the freshest ingredients for this dish and tops it with the South’s nut of choice — the pecan. You could try using purple sweet potatoes in this recipe to shake things up.
