I like beets too! Canned, fresh, whatever. I also like the ruby glow that graces your cutting board and skin. Makes the process legit.

Hillary - If you haven't tried them roasted I"m going to have to encourage you to do so. :) Becky - they're totally different roasted than from a can - they get really sweet this way. Try them! Sarah - and this is exactly why I'm annoyed by my orange allergy. :) [shwn] - Aw, shucks! Thank you! SallyBR - I bet barley would make a great substitute. Give it a shot and let me know what you and your husband think!

Haven t been able to find farro around my neck of the woods - but this could work with barley, what do you think? I love beets - but to convince my beloved husband to go for it, I will need to double the bacon! :-) (great post, as always)

If you weren't married already, I'd propose! Why can't I find a woman that cooks in New York? Every girl I date thinks cooking is something grandmothers and house wifes do. I once dated a girl that kept her law books in her oven. The girl I am dating nowz idea of cooking is butter noodles-- which she eats on a saucer because she has no dishes. Ok, that's kinduh cute to actually watch. I love to cook and hope to find a woman that I can share this joy with. Any tips on how I might go about this? By the way, you guys take great pictures. They make me hungry. Your picture of the pot pie has inspired me to go to Northeast Kingdom for one tonight. They make a really good chicken pot pie. Cheers, and keep up the good work!

I, too was wary of the beet for far too long, despite my mother's love for them and their appearance at many a meal in my childhood household. I just couldn't get beyond the earthy topnotes of their taste. This dislike of them went on, that is, until I discovered the bright, buttery and citrusy flavor of the golden beet. Like stu's mention, all they need to shine is a simple roast, a bitter green component, and some additional citrus. See - http://topchefs.chef2chef.net/recipes-2/waters/red-golden-beets-orange-endive-walnuts.htm even Alice Waters knows what's what. let's eat.

Those beets look wonderful. I'll eat any vegetable and like it. Beets are my favorite from a can, but I would love to try the fresh. I'll definately try your recipe. Yum! Bikerchickz

Hi ed! I'd love to try my hand at growing some, mostly so I could guarantee that I get both beets *and* greens!

Beets definitely are the best--especially fresh beets. We try to have some growing in the garden at all times. Roasting seems to intensify the flavors.

Stu - oh, that sounds wonderful. Definitely something to try! jennifer - YUM. Walnuts would make an awesome accompaniment to beets. I'll definitely keep that in mind!
