I'm STILL searching for an edible beet recipe. The last one I had written on rice paper, and I could barely choke that one down.

They're very good to add depth of flavor to a roasted root vegetable soup, or you can just have roasted mixed vegetables, but I can't say that I normally eat them a ton.

When I was a wee lad Mom drove the family down to Florida to see one of the early Apollo launches. During the visit we (the kids) begged to go fishing. Mom finally relented. The cheapest/foulest cut bait was mullet. Mullet is now being sold in the seafood case at most of the big chain food stores.

In the near future the U.S. will go the Chinese route and eat almost anything.

A friend of mine has a trophy wife that can turn out an edible beet. I think she soaks slices in honey and soy sauce and braises it in port or sherry. They surrender somewhere midway through the process.

You have to be more specific. I like beets too. Right up to the point where they invade my nasal passages with a pungent cloying musky odor reminiscent of long dead otter with overtones of formaldehyde. But right up to that point, I like them in kind of the same way I like tripe.

Nice reference. Even though that's not the scene where she says it, I could hear Kenny's voice "we are, in fact, eating more beets".

But really, Michigan and an ill governor is no guide for the president and MS.

I also love beats. Try some LTJ Bukem for some nice DnB love.

To eat beets.

You have not had good pickled beets. And really? I'm not the biggest beet fan, but of all the repulsive cuisine the world has to offer, beets is the one true gagger for ya? Have you tried okra? You don't even have to eat it, just watch it drool of your fork and get back to me. Mmmk.

OK like anything they have an expiration date. If their "beet brown" as opposed to "beet red",, dispose of them promptly and seek fresh beets. Under no circumstance eat blue brow or green beets.

People hate beets because they eat overcooked or badly pickled ones. Your beet should not feel like a well done baked potato, or its overcooked. It should still be slightly crisp. I peel them, cut into wedges, toss with olive oil and roast for 20-30 minutes in the oven, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle on salt. The greens are nice pan fried with mushrooms or gently roasted in the oven, with a little salt and butter.

Haven't pickled them myself yet though. But I have eaten pickled beet salads at nice restaurants.

Mmmmmm... pickled beets are yummy. Now if this was an okra story, THEN we are running out of food.

I made a juice from beets once, turned my mouth purple, stained everyfookingthing in my kitchen purple, and i am pretty sure my piss was purple too. Didn't have beets for years after that.

1. Obtain fresh beets.

2. Cut tops off beets and wash well. Trim any rough spots, or peel if you're into that sort of thing.

3. Cut into 1 inch cubes, put in a lidded casserole dish. Toss with salt and a bit of olive oil. ADD NO WATER. Cover dish.

4. Cook in 350 F oven, stirring every ten minutes or so, until tender. This should take around a half hour to fourty five minutes.

5. Eat as many of the roasted beets as your belly can hold.

6. Wait 4 to 6 hours.

7. Write your name in the snow in a beautiful sunset red/purple color.

Note: This apparently doesn't work for everyone. It seems some people can process the beet color better than others. Also, your next bowel movement will be an interesting shade as well. This means it can be entertaining to feed your friends and family this side dish, and not tell them about this side effect. Chances are, they'll have forgotten what you fed them for dinner by the time they have to answer nature's call.

Note note: And this tastes pretty good too. Feel free to cook it just for food value and not base entertainment, if you're into that sort of thing.

Just when I think we're all done with this crazy vegetable and it'll never be heard from again, the beet goes on.

I make excellent beets. With more and more beets being sold and consumed, you'd think there would be a greater interest in competitive beet cooking. Yet, every time I challenge anyone to a beet off, things just seem to go wrong.

If I want something cylindrical spurting goo in my mouth I'll turn gay, until then I keep this stuff as far away from me as I can. Nasty.

And beets are tasty. Had some today as a matter of fact.

/and rutabaga on the weekend, YAY!
//boiled and mashed. 1 stick of butter per large rutabaga, salt and pepper. Better than potatoes

So you're saying you should eat nothing but beets for 3 days before a colonoscopy?
 
2011-12-30 08:18:46 PM
Roasted beets w/ a side of aioli is pretty good. Put some chives on em.

Pickled is also alright, though can get tiring before long, like all pickles...
 
2011-12-30 08:19:02 PM
When they get to turnips, then I'll worry.
 
2011-12-30 08:19:27 PM
Funny thing... at my house, we all love beets... picked, cooked, they barely survive and very few times we end up with leftovers.

I buy them by the gigantic bag when I get ready to pickle some, and we feast on them so badly once they are cooked, that we probably go through the equivalent of 3-4 jar's worth... we usually don't even have supper as we fill up on them.

Then we get to pee purple for a few days so that's another bonus.

... hmmm... off to the pantry to find a jar I think.
