A client told me Appleton, WI uses beets on their roads during the winter instead of salt to prevent icy roads….eh, what?
I googled a few things and found this funny Huffington Post article from last year. They talk about how Wisconsin uses cheese brine instead of salt to de-ice the snowy roads. Here’s another article from TIME that talks about cheese & beets being used again. Has anyone heard of ” beet heet?” I sure haven’t, but I love it.
