Farmer Kerry's Famous Beets and Greens with Balsamic Reduction

  • A bunch of beets with their greens
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar

Start the balsamic reduction by putting the vinegar in a small sauce pan and putting it on low heat. Keep a careful eye on it and let it simmer until the vinegar thickens and is reduced to a couple tablespoons. Clean the beets and beet tops well. Dirt likes to get trapped where the greens attach to the beet so I'll pay special attention to there, sometimes trimming it away. Chop the beets and greens. Heat the oil in the pan and add the beets. Cook for about 5 minutes stirring as needed. Add a cup of water and let simmer for about 10 minutes or until beets begin to soften. Add greens and cook until the greens and beets are tender. Remove from heat and poor the reduction on. Sprinkle a little salt to taste.
