It's all a question of how beets are prepared. Try a good Russian
Borscht once - it is very good.

To late, CJ - Gus and I are already dragged through the desert, naked, by wild horses.

(And a beet is a beet, disguised as borscht or plain on the plate!)

I have to admit that I have not tasted beets since i was a littel girl and my mother made me try them. I hated them. I have learned to like plenty of other vegetables. Maybe I'll give beets another go.

A properly prepared borscht is a helluva lot more than just beets. Beets are necessary but, in most cases, they're not even the main ingredient.

Beets can be yum.

Roasted ... in borscht ... in herring salad ... the delicious options are nearly endless.

I'm still trying to figure out if there's a vegetable I really really hate.

I'm not crazy for turnips, but I can't even say I hate them.

I think that with the right recipe I like all vegetables.

Beets

Is a beet a vegetable? If so, put me down for that.


I love pickled beets eaten right from the jar.

BBB

Roasted Pickled Beets

1 large red onion, frenched
1 cup tarragon wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water

Remove the skin from the Roasted Beets and slice thinly. Arrange in 1-quart jars alternating layers with the onion. In a small pot boil the rest of the ingredients and pour over the beets. Tightly lid the jars and place in the refrigerator for 3 to 7 days before serving.

Picled Beet Eggs

2 cans (about 15 ounces each) small whole beets
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 hard-cooked eggs, shelled
salad greens

Drain the beets, reserving liquid. Place the drained beets in a 1 1/2-quart jar. Measure 1 cup reserved liquid, if necessary, adding enough water to measure 1 cup. In small saucepan, combine beet liquid, vinegar, sugar and salt; bring to boil, stirring.

Pour mixture over beets; then refrigerate, tightly covered, for 24 hours. Next day, remove beets from liquid in jar and return beets to the refrigerator in a covered container. Put eggs in the jar of the beet pickling liquid and refrigerate, covered, 24 hours.

Drain eggs; halve lengthwise, and slice beets. Arrange eggs on salad greens, along with the sliced beets. Serves 6.

still mulling over 'hated vegetables'

the only thing I can think of is that I can be verra verra fussy about how veggies are prepped - I don't like many veggies with sauces - and there are some veggies I don't care for once they're cooked - but if I get to pick the prep method ... I'll eat the veggies

Like ehBeth, I'm having some difficulty thinking of a vegetable that I absolutely despise. Spinach ... can't stand it as a sodden cooked heap on my plate, but love it raw in salads or baked in vegetarian lasagne. Even okra is good if properly prepared. I'm much more irrational about meat.

I love beets -- fresh cooked ones with some butter and fresh cracked pepper and sea salt. But, years ago I had a embarrassing incident with them. My new guy had me meet his family, and his mother had prepared a meal with beets just the way I like 'em. So I kinda pigged out. That night was the first time he & I slept together. The next morning, when I went to the bathroom, I thought I was hemorraging! How could I possibly tell this new guy that I needed to be taken to the hospital after our first sex. I mean, we were still at the point in the relationship where I shaved my legs scrupulously and he didn't burp in front of me. Finally I decided that since I wasn't in pain, it couldn't be serious. Eventually it dawned on me that this was caused by the beets.

the parsnip children I repeat
Is merely an anemic beet
Some people find the parsnip edible
I find this statement quite incredible

ROASTED BABY BEETS AND SAUTEED BEET GREENS
ROASTED BABY BEETS AND SAUTEED BEET GREENS

Take 3 bunches of baby beets with tops; washed well. Cut off the tops and reserve.

Place the beets in a roasting pan; toss with olive oil and add rosemary sprigs. Roast at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes. Remove the beet skins while warm; then cut beets in half.

Meanwhile saute the beet greens in olive oil and add a splash of balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and place on a serving plate; top with baby beets.
