These aren't golden beets.....

chioga beets, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

We bought what we thought were more golden beets from the same farmer's market vendor as last time, but these turned out to be chioga beets. (I suppose we should have known they were not golden beets because they were quite a bit redder on the outside). Also tasty, these guys are red and white on the inside--almost like a pretty radish. They also have a completely different flavor from red or golden beets, but you can still tell that they are in the beet family.
