Galley Wench Tales

Exploring the world through the people we meet
and the food they eat.

Picked up what I was willing to bet were these beets
in Dutch St. Maarten.  If they are beets, they’re part of
tonight’s dinner, to be served with blue cheese on top;
a nice, simple side dish.

“Or at least one word in English,” quipped the ever-witty Wayne. 
This was after his “What the heck is this… HAK?” regarding a bottle of red violet stuff I picked up in Dutch St. Maarten.  I’d just pointed out to Wayne what looked like a beet to me on the left hand part of the label image.

Truthfully, I kind of enjoy the challenge of provisioning in places where I don’t speak the language.  And I’ve guessed right on what’s inside, at least so far.
