The Dark Side of Pickling
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A BEETROOT
The Oracle at Delphi pronounced that the beetroot was worth its weight in silver. Even Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, ate beetroot to retain her beauty.
The Romans believed that if a man and woman ate from the same beetroot, they would fall in love.
Beetroot was used to make Kvas – “the drink of knowledge”.
Beet juice put into the nostrils can relieve toothache and foul breath.
