Beet Tops with Bacon

1 bunch beet tops – chopped into bit sizes
1 strip of bacon, or as much as you like – chopped
2 young onions – chopped with greens
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. sugar (or maple syrup)
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
hot pepper flakes

Heat up a frying pan and cook the chopped bacon. Add in the onions and cook until they are soft. Stir in the minced garlic (or scape). Add the water and keep stirring. Stir in the sugar/maple syrup and pepper flakes. Bring the mixture to a boil and then add the beet tops, tossing them until they are coated. Cook the tops until desired texture. Don’t let them cook down too much so try just a few minutes. Stir in the vinegar and serve. You can also do this recipe with kale or chard.
