The St. Hallmark's Day Beet-Off!

So those of us without anything significant to do (excepting Sarah and John) on this year's St. Hallmark's Day decided to give Borschtmas a send-off in style. Unfortunately, I couldn't convince Matt to be elected as Remus and run around beating the girls with strips of flayed beet skins, maybe next year.

Nonetheless, much borscht was consumed and even more borscht thrown away, a beet cake was made, and candied beets graced the table. Then the ultimate St. Hallmark's Day movie was watched and much pass-outs followed. Ah, St. Hallmark's Day.

In case you're wondering why this would possibly be posted, or even interest you, here's your very own recipe for candied beets:

Jack Daniel's whiskey
black pepper

Wash and peel the beets, slice very thinly. Arrange in a baking dish. In a bowl, combine whiskey and honey in a ratio of 2:1. Add spices, mix well, pour over beets. Toss the beets in the sauce. Bake for one hour at 375 degrees farenheit. After half an hour, add more whiskey and toss again. Serve hot.
