Put down that can opener. Do not open another can of beets this summer until you try the real thing - earthy, sweet beets freshly dug from the garden. I know, I know. You thought beets grew in those aluminum cans. You're shocked that they can be purchased any other way. Canned beets are so convenient that many of us have never tasted fresh. I don't know anyone who cooks fresh beets anymore, and that's too bad. Although the difference in flavor between canned and fresh beets isn't as dramatic as it is with, say, asparagus, fresh beets are indeed a treat.

Make room for cider and mead. In Maryland, cider was last popular in Colonial times. Mead never has been. But a new generation of mead and cider makers, with their feet planted firmly in Maryland soil, are rethinking these age-old fermented beverages and introducing them to new audiences. The meads from Orchid Cellar Winery in Middletown and the small-batch cider wines from Millstone Cellars in Monkton are showing up on the shelves of boutique wine and liquor stores. Bartenders are crafting them into cocktails at restaurants like Woodberry Kitchen and Bluegrass . Andrzej Wilk Jr. of Orchid Cellar and Kyle Sherrer of Millstone are the new agers, inspired by and committed to the attitudes about methods and sourcing that have inspired a generation of farm-to-table chefs.

In recent celebrity weddings I've noticed a very "earthy crunchy" theme creeping in. There have been a lot of non-traditional settings, free spirit, wherever the wind takes you type of events within the Who's Who circle. Just take these celeb weddings, for example: Natalie Portman Natalie's wedding to Benjamin Millepied came complete with wildflowers, a vegan menu and a twig-made chuppah. They even gave guests wildflower seed packets as favors. Talk about keeping it down to earth!

1994 Trumpeter Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipu, Argentina ($9).This Argentine cabernet is a medium- to full-bodied red wine with earthy, meaty flavors and a surprisingly fine structure for its price range. It's a little on the rustic side but delivers plenty of ripe black-cherry flavor. It should age quite well for three to five years, but is fully ready to drink now.@

It has ample blackberry, black- pepper and chocolate flavors, with some earthy and meaty nuances. It comes with a screw cap, which guards against cork contamination. Serve with grilled red meat.

1995 Terra Rosa North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon ($13)This intensely flavorful cabernet is a worthy little brother to the Laurel Glen cabernets that are also produced by Patrick Campbell. It's a meaty, earthy cabernet with generous dollops of blackberry and black pepper. This marvelously well-balanced wine also offers exceptional length and good staying power over the next six to eight years.Pub Date: 10/12/97

2003 Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha, Calatayud ($10). This Spanish red wine is an incredible value that is well worth buying by the case. Made from the grape known as grenache in France, it offers rich and nuanced flavors of blackberry, black pepper, blueberry, chocolate and herbs. Imagine a cross between a fine Chateauneuf-du-Pape and a good California zinfandel. It's smooth, ripe and earthy - and it competes well with wines at three times the price. - Michael Dresser

2000 Santa Barbara Winery ZCS ($13). This imaginative red blend of zinfandel, carignane and sangiovese really rocks. It's an exceptionally lively, medium-bodied wine with the distinctive wild berry and spice flavors of grapes from old vines. There are many fine "field-blend" red wines in California, but this one is truly a cut above. Its fruit and earthy aromas just jump out of the glass, and its lively acidity makes it a promising companion to grilled red meat or pasta in a tomato sauce.

With the Tortellini Boscaiola ($10), Pazani (a combination of the words pasta, pizza and panini) delivers a rich cream sauce that's remarkably pumpkin orange for a rose. This is a tenaciously clingy sauce. You could complain that the sauce isn't as silky as you might expect in a rose cream, but that's nitpicking. Any pasta style would work with this Boscaiola, but stick with the cheese-stuffed tri-color tortellini — Pazani presents it al dente. Boscaiola recipes can call for sausage or bacon.

Editor's note: Coming Saturday, The Sun introduces a new home design section. This is the centerpiece of the first print edition. There's a suspicious dearth of chrome, not a lick of black leather and the place is utterly without a bar. Not one wall — and there are quite a few — is holding up, Atlas-style, an intimidating fortress of electronic equipment. Bob Bowman's new home, at least on paper, is a bachelor pad. But the truth is, the swim coach famous for leading Michael Phelps to Olympic gold has worked hard to make the house he built on 37 acres off a winding Monkton road feel warm, livable and very, very real.

It's just what we like" is the way Donna Payne modestly handles myriad compliments on her home decor, calling it "Eclectic with Arts & Crafts." But more than mere pieces of furniture and interior design, the home's wow factor arises from optimum use of small spaces and unique placement of furniture that creates an open circular flow to the living area of her rancher with a basement in Howard County. The Paynes purchased their 2,400-square-foot L-shaped rancher in 1980 for $81,000. As the original owners, they have, over the past 28 years, finished the home to their liking with modifications and additions totaling $300,000.

From: Russian River Valley, Calif. Price: $40 Serve with: Roast poultry, tuna steakIt is not lightly that one recommends a $40 California pinot noir, but this Burgundylike beauty from Robert Stemmler is, if anything, underpriced for its exceptional quality. It offers bright black-cherry fruit - seasoned with subtle earthy notes - that just won't let go. Its full body is buffered by a silky texture that glides across the palate, and it exhibits flavors and aromas of wild berries and cranberry.

There's no mistaking the scent of borscht on the stove top, filling the room with an earthy aroma and warmth that only a simmering pot of soup can offer. Each week after services at St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church on Eastern Avenue, the rich, beet-root soup is ladled into bowls and served to the faithful at coffee hour. So it's no surprise that it will be on the menu Saturday and Sunday at the 30th annual Ukrainian Festival in Patterson Park, alongside herring, stuffed cabbages, pastries and homemade breads.

A CENTURY AGO today an Irish Jew named Leopold Bloom made himself breakfast, went to a funeral, stopped by a newspaper office, where he met an alienated young man named Stephen Dedalus, and then spent the rest of the day and evening criss-crossing Dublin. Bloom wasn't real. But the city, the newspaper office, the pubs where he drank, the streets he walked along were. All of the events of James Joyce's novel Ulysses took place on June 16, 1904. Some may think it precious to mark the anniversary, which would be too bad, because Ulysses is anything but precious.

Just as Chaucer's pilgrims traveled to Canterbury in April, so has the Royal Shakespeare Company chosen this month to journey to Washington's Kennedy Center with its adaptation of The Canterbury Tales. The three-week run is the sole American engagement of this two-part, six-hour Chaucer marathon. Bawdy, brazen, belligerent, and at times tedious, the production is a demanding exercise for the 20-member cast -- and for the audience. THE CANTERBURY TALES / / Through May 7 / / Kennedy Center, Washington / / 800-444-1324 or kennedycenter.
