Why are Harvard beets called Harvard beets?

It seems that the origin of the name "Harvard beets" is still unknown. There are theories though (Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink by John F. Mariani) that the dish was created three centuries ago at an English tavern called Harwood's. Presumably, one of its customers, a Russian emigre opened a restaurant up in Boston under the same name in 1846. But since he kept pronouncing his restaurant's name like "Harvard," so the dish he brought from England became known as 'Harvard beets.'

Should beet pulp be fed wet or dry to horses?

always feed wet other wise the horse/pony will get colic which could lead to death Beet pulp is most commonly fed wet. I would think that this is the best way to feed it because, if fed dry, the beet pulp would expand in the horse's stomach. This could potentially cause colic; colic that could be severe enough to cause death if you don't feed properly. Ask your local veterinarian the proper way to mix beet pulp for your horse. Beet pulp is a good supplement for your horse, especially in the winter months when it is often hard to keep weight on them. And they love it! Not Exactly! However if you read the bag on beet pulp you will find out that you should always feed it wet. Dry beet pulp not only expands in their stomach, but also, if fed dry scratches their throats. Over time it starts to wear away the inner layers of their throats which can be potentially deadly if severe enough. Dispelling Myths Beet pulp can be fed either wet or dry. Feeding dry beet pulp doesn't damage the throat, increase the risk of choke or increase the risk of colic. There have been studies performed where up to 45% of the diet was dry beet pulp and no increase in incidence of choke or other adverse reactions.


How do you steam beets?

Steamed foods have the water boiling beneath the food and the steam rising all around and about the food. Any steamer is based on that type of cooking. Your beets must be washed, stems removed, peel the beets, and place them in the inner pan of the steamer. Always cover the pot when steaming your vegetables, and check the water level periodically to ensure you will not burn it up! Every steamer I have seen has the three (3) parts: the interior pan or pot that holds the vegetable being steamed, the exterior pan or pot that holds the boiling water and the interior pan of vegetables, and the lid of the pot. The vegetables must not be in the boiling water, but above it, with the steam encircling the vegetables. The vegetables should also be in a single layer so the steam is moving around each beet, steaming it evenly over, under, and around each one. A really full pot of beets will surely steam the beets done, but it will take much more time, and most cooks over-cook the vegetables while trying to get them done evenly. Your goal should be to cook the beets, but retain the firmness and flavor of the vegetable. I test for done using a fork, piercing the beet until I can tell how well done it is. I'll guess the cooking time, from the time the water is at a full, rolling boil, to the time you declare the vegetables done, to be about 15-30 minutes. Your amount of time will be determined by the beets (whether they are large or small, new spring crop or stored awhile, and how many you put in the pot to cook), the amount of water in the pot, and how well-done you want them to be. That is the basic information about steaming beets (and other vegetables). I hope this is what you were asking for!

How many grams does a whole beet weigh?

Beets are not all the same size, but you can weight them in the store (if they are fresh, although they will have the greens on them) and most of the store scales have both ounces and grams listed. If you are buying canned, believe it or not metric (grams are metric) is the official measuring system of the USA and all goods sold commercially will have the metric weight listed. So, just check the side of the can.
