How to Love BeetsOct 14, 2010
By Anne Wingate
Think how beautiful a plate of these muticolored beets, sliced across to show the insides, would be on a dinner or banquet table. But too many people don't like beets. So what should you do?
To start with, DON'T put sugar on the beets. Also, don't put orange juice or marmalade on the beets. That's barfocious. Here is how you cook beets:
Remove the greens, cutting about an inch above the beet. Wash the greens and cook as you usually cook greens. Serve warm, with butter and/or hot sauce.
Put the beets in a pan. Cover them with water about two inches higher than the beets. Simmer them for thirty to forty-five minutes, depending on the size. I hope you will harvest these early enough that thirty minutes will be sufficient. Cool. Gently peel off the skins and tails. They will come off easily in your hands; no knife is needed. Slice the beets. Put them in a covered dish. Chill and serve. No butter, no salt, no anything. They don't need it.
After you have sliced the beets, make a nice sweet pickle vinaigrette including the beet cooking water (strained through muslin) in the vinaigrette to prevent it from being too tart. Pour the hot vinaigrette over the sliced pickles, being sure the pickles are covered. Chill and serve.
That's about as simple as you can get, unless you want to grate the raw beets and put them in a tossed salad. Although the taste will be excellent, you don't want to spoil the beauty of these beets.
Sit back and purr as your family and/or guests ask to have the beets passed again . . . and again . . . .

Excellent beetsMay 18, 2012
By Peter M. Finin
I grew these beets in my garden in Tanzania while in the Peace Corps. The greens were delicious, the beets were delicious, the plants grew great. It really made me happy to have this little taste of home.

I have planted seeds in my garden and they are sprouting, happy with the amount of seeds for the price
Good Beet Seeds - But ExpensiveJan 26, 2013
This variety of beet is easy to grow and will produce about 2-3 inch beet roots. They are easy to plant. All they need is thinning, watering, and weeding. The beets are a deep red color and are very nutritious. I juice the ones I grow. The juice is deep red. Beet juice has many health benefits, especially anti-cancer properties and will lower blood pressure (dose dependent). My only gripe is that the seeds are expensive. I have switched to a less expensive brand. All the same, these seeds will grow and give you lots of beets, likely more than one can consume. Beets can be kept in cold storage for a long time if one has a root cellar.
