Beets are good for the kidneys--try the golden beets juiced with other things. I don't like pears, but I can handle pears juiced with other things (and baked in a pear crisp). Maybe one beet added to other things juiced?

You can also use pureed pears to muffins or add to cream of butternut soup.
I add 2 pears or apples to my squash soup and a bit of onion and curry. Very yummy and you can't tell it's in there.

You can add grated or julienned raw beets to salad or coleslaw. Tastes completely different.
The small beets are less earthy and taste better too.

Green salad with beets

2 small beets cut into julienne strips
1 carrot cut into julliene strips
1 shallot finely sliced
about 12 cherry tomatoes halved
1 small head of crisp lettuce shredded
1/2 cup of crispy bacon chopped
3 boiled eggs chopped
1/2 cup of fresh mozzarella torn or diced
Green goddess dressing or Italian Vinaigrette

Toss the veggies well, top with crispy bacon bits, egg and cheese.
Drizzle with dressing.

Come Saturday, I think everyone should have for breakfast....

Crispy bacon covered in dark chocolate with a milk chocolate glaze. It will start your weekend off on the right foot.

I'm thinking pancakes for Saturday's breakfast. Today, it was peanut butter and blueberry jam on 12-grain bread, and a glass of milk.

That sounds great! Is it the "earthiness" about beets that people don't like? I adore beets--raw, cooked, roasted, juiced.

I love pickled beets. Yum! Have never tried raw beets... I should grow some this year. They are just too expensive for me to buy at the grocery store. I like to eat the beet greens too

I too eat the beet greens. If carrots grow well in your soil, beets should do well. And yes, they are expensive. I am glad I don't have to buy beets--they are more expensive / lb than potatoes!
