Beets

We had a large quantity of organically grown beets in the fridge, so we decided to make beets salad. A very familiar salad that we ate a lot as kids. Boiled and peeled beets, grated and mixed with finely grated horseradish, vinegar and salt.

Because I had a lot of purple colored water from boiling the beets, I decided to dye some hand woven canvas and some pieces of cotton in it. It came out a subtle beige-pink. I’m not sure how the color would hold up to repeated washing, but I use these pieces of fabric for my embroideries that I don’t really plan to wash. The yellow and brown pieces were dyed some time ago with turmeric and onion peels.
