    OMG, they are so delicious! My usual way of cooking beets is to cut off the tops and bottoms, leave them unpeeled and whole, boil them, and then slip them out of their peels. Chop them up, add salt/pepper/butter/vinegar or lemon juice, and devour. Yes, I love beets!


    But, last night I tried something completely different and now I'm at a whole new level of beet devotedness; I'm a beet addict.


    I peeled them while raw, chopped them into 1" pieces, put them in a baking dish, tossed them with salt/pepper/butter/balsamic vinegar, covered with tin foil, and roasted them for about 1.5 hours at 350F. OMG, they are so delicious! Okay, beets are awesome no matter what you do to them, but this put them on a whole new level. Please, try it, you'll be an addict, too.

    Yummmm, like dark red candy. Too bad they&#39;re high in carbs, so you need to divulge judiciously, but they&#39;re certainly delicious and addictive. Hello, everyone, my name is Sharon and I&#39;m a beetaholic.

    Well I don&#39;t mind carbs, so I can indulge in them. Besides, they have no fructose, according to nutritiondata. I&#39;m going to buy some this week.

    Hm... Do you use them from the can? I have one sitting in my pantry but have yet to use &#39;em. I usually like them in salad, but tend to use them straight from the can ... Does boiling really make them better?
