Tops and Bottoms ..beets that is.

A lot of the older tougher greens benefits from a long braising. The beet greens along with cannolleni beans make a wonderful fragant stew. Adding ham or anchovies steps up the salt factor but also adds a depth of flavor. The beans and greens have lots of uses including pureeing and using as a spread, shown here with a beet and orange puree... a total beet experience.
