I don't think that I had veer really tried beets. They are currently one of the few things doing well in our garden....guess they don't mind the non stop rain. In fact, they are huge. I harvested a couple last week, wrapped them in foil, and baked them in the oven for an hour. Sliced them up, served them with some lettuce (from the garden), blue cheese, and a citrus vinegrette dressing. Next time I will just use a blue cheese dressing (the vinegrette stunk)..........good stuff.
