They're okay, not one of my favorites.

Not particularly. They taste a bit like dirt. However, occassionally I don't mind one if it is pickled the old-fashioned way.

Yuck for me too. I don't like them at all. I just can't even try to taste it.
Sandy and Irene like beets a lot. May be their entusiasm will rub on my taste buds.
I never ever cooked them.

emoticon I have tried and tried to like them, but yuck! I just don't. I've heard you can bake them in things, maybe that would be a way I could stomach them....

I've never fixed beets for my family. We had them all the time growing up, my Mom loves them.

I love, love, love beets. I grew up with my mom always having beets and onions in vinegar! I love them hot, cold and I particularly love beet salad with goat cheese! It is to die for. I love red and yellow beets too! My sister grows them and there is nothing like fresh beets boiled and served fresh! It is really good stuff!!!

emoticon Do you like beets?

What ways do you prepare them?

Do you combine them with other vegetables?

For those of us who don't like them, can you share some ideas and inspire us to try beets?

Thank you
