    I love them. I'll eat pickled beets straight out of the package. Since I found some frozen beets I've been adding them, in half serving amounts, to my blueberry banana chocolate smoothies. Even my toddler loves them that way.
  • Nope...I HATE beets...I just don't like the taste. I need to eat them though! They are soooo good for you! :) I may try to reintroduce maybe in powder form in smoothies! lol good luck with that. :)

    I juice them with my other veg n fruit , turns every juice red but it helps me consume a good quantity, otherwise they are forever in my fridge partially grated for salads :smile:

    I usually just roast mine and serve as a side like I would potatoes or something...or I'll put them in a salad. I also make this beet salad with sour cream and horseradish that is pretty awesome. I also like to pickle them.

    Just no canned beets...nasty ****...

    My mom made me it these when I was pregnant. They are pretty good roasted, with salad but the best in my opinion is Borscht. I've never had'em pickled though.... hmm.

    Yes. Love 'em! Both purple and golden.

    Note: I grew up hating them because they only ever got served as borscht and hardvard beets. Even with butter, I cannot tolerate them today. I like my beets plain-- warm or cold. I can also enjoy them roasted and glazed in a citrus mix for salads but to date that is the exception to the plain preference.

    Roasted is my favorite way. Drizzle safflower or sunflower oil with chopped garlic cloves and roast @ 425 for 20-30 minutes depending on how big you chopped the beets. Then drizzle balsamic vinegar over the beets. Delicious!

    Or just steam and eat in a salad. You can also slice very very thin, coat with oil. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt, and rosemary over and bake until crispy.

    I also like them juiced with celery and carrots.
