Above photo are candied beets from Marlow + Daughters. An unusual treat we couldn’t resist trying on one of our quick runs there recently and a perfect tie-in for beet week. These guys taste like most gummy candy, but even sweeter with that thick sugar coating on such a thin slice. Marlow + Daughters makes these guys in house, in fact we’re pretty sure we’ve never seen them anywhere else. Have you ?
Have a wonderful weekend
