I’m not a big fan of beets, but I am forcing myself to like them. About twice a year, I buy them and try them again, just in case my palate gives way to a newfound liking. A couple of weeks ago, I bought some fresh beets and boiled them until tender. I drained them, carefully peeled the skins off (and still managed to stain my shirt with the ruby red beet juice.) I sliced them, cooled to room temperature and served them with a dollop of goat cheese, a dash of sea salt and fresh, ground black pepper.
Sorry for the out of focus picture. Some days, my photography is less than par. I must have forgotten to set to Macro for the close-up.
I think I can eat them this way… and, I think I may like them just a teensy bit. Hmmm. Funny how that works. I think the general rule of “you have to try something at least 10-15 times before you like it” is a valid one. Next time, I may get a little more adventurous and see if I can get my kids and husband to start eating them.
