EVOO Orange Beet Jam

EVOO Orange Beet Jam

If you think beets taste like dirt, this recipe is a game changer. Did you know these little red roots have natural sugars that make for a fine pairing with cheese, EVOO, yogurt, or even on top of ice cream? Would you dare even sneak it into your PB&J? We would. 


3 medium beets, peeled and diced
3/4 cup raw sugar
zest and juice of two oranges (we used Valencia)
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp Chefs Life Finishing Oil


In a small pot, combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook for 25-35 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced and the beets are able to be pierced with a fork easily. Pour into a blender and process until smooth. Cool completely before using.
Suggested use: beet jam + greek yogurt skillfully piped onto a delicious piece of thick cut toast.
