I've been a beet hater all my life. I can smell a beet cooking the minute I walk into a house, and I'm like, "PEE-YUUU!" Well, you know my motto: To hell with anything unrefined.
Although they take an unGODly amount of time to cook (45-60 minutes for a little bitty beet), fresh beets are totally worth it!
Even the "fresh" ones you buy in the supermarket smell and taste like dirt to me. The fresh ones are almost sweet.
This picture accompanying the post is of a supper we had the other night: two pale kinds of beets boiled and buttered, crisp-fried marinated tofu, and breaded and fried yellow squash.
What's your favorite recipe for beets?
