Dyeing with Beets

Kitchen art today instead of mixed media art. Yesterday was my household's annual horseradish production. I have to admit I'm not the artist/chef. I'm the happy helper (as needed) and cleaner-upper.

Instead of using beets to dye wool or fabric, here's what it looks like when you use golden or red beets to dye horseradish. Much more attractive than white horseradish. A darker color can be obtained by using more beets, but then the horseradish won't be as potent.
