It's Memorial Day weekend. That means it's time to dust off the backyard smoker and throw some — wait for it — beets on the grill. In Santa Monica this week, Baltaire chef Travis Strickland shares his "set it and forget it" smoked beet recipe with Laura Avery. You'll find it waiting for you on the Good Food blog.
Farmer Chris Edwards also gives us the scoop on what goes into growing organic beets at the Rutiz Family Farm in Arroyo Grande. It takes 90 days for the seeds to become tennis ball-sized beets which Edwards pulls from the ground by hand.
