i don't like beets, never had. i know, i know they are really good for you-lots of iron yada yada. i do however LOVE beet greens. Usually what i do is eat the greens and give the beet part to my friends Jack and August-they love to juice them-double yuck!
i know that we will be getting more beets and i really love how the goldens look. i am trying to find a way to make them tasty....people always tell me that roasted beets are really good so maybe if i add tons of lemon and garlic it might help!
