This recipe has been passed down from my great-grandmother to my Nana to my Mom and now to me. Boiled beets and potatoes are grated and fried in butter for a classic New England treat. Very simple to make and very much a comfort food in our house!

This particular Red Flannel Hash recipe was in my opinion, tasty but incomplete. The first time I ever had traditional New England Red Flannel Hash or "Velvet Hash" as some called it, was prepared by my husband's paternal grandmother. Both she and her mother pepared this unique and colorful recipe with all the leftover vegetables and ham from the traditional New England Boiled Dinner. The potatoes, carrots, turnip, cabbage and ham along with beets and onions, were ground altogether through a meat grinder and fried with butter in a cast iron skillet. The condiment of choice was vinegar that was sprinkled on top for those that enjoyed that flavor. This recipe brings back many memories and the flavors are vivid reminders of living in the simple life in the country.

My Grampa used to make this, adding finely shredded leftover roast beef to the hash to make a colorful, delicious meal. Quick, easy, and delicious!

For such simple ingredients, this was very, very good. I used fresh beets, purple potatoes, and olive oil. The vinegar adds so much flavor without being overpowering. I'll definitely make this again--next time, I'll sautee some onions and add them to the mix.
