I love Beets. I will often buy about four or five fresh one, cook and peel them, leave in the fridge. When lookiing for a snack, will grab one with the salt shaker and pig out.

I love eel. Smoked, grilled, sauteed, baked, I don't care how you cook it, I love the flavor of it.

Grilled eel on nigiri (With sauce) is one of my favorite types of sushi.

At the fair in Berlin, Germany, one of the prizes given out was roasted eels. The bigger the prize, the bigger the eel. Yum City!

I would like to try some of the other ways of preparing eel. I have only had it smoked and I really like it. I haven't eaten it in years. I grew eating it at every special family meal. It's very rich. I once made the mistake of taking two large pieces.

The Fishmonger who came to the house every Tuesday when I lived in Northern Germany often had smoked eel. I found it way too fatty for my liking. I was only 17--maybe my palette was under-developed having grown up with my mother's 7-day rotating menu...perhaps I would like it now...

Beets are perhaps my most favorite veggie after eggplant. I love beets raw (baby, grated), pickled, juiced, roasted, baked, boiled....right after beet juice, I love pomegranate juice--except no matter how I juice the seeds, I end up having to wash the walls.

The only eel available in the U.P. is Lamprey eel. I understand that it is a prized delicacy in the U.K. but here, in the Great lakes, it is full of things like mercury, and all of the other nasties that can be found in top predatory fish. They are a parasite that suck the juices from the flesh of large lake trout, salmon, etc.

Somebody once said that the best way to control an invasive species, i.e. Asian Catfish, lamprey eels, rusty crawfish, humboldt squid, etc., is to make the comercially available in restaurants and grocery stores. If they aren't a contaminated critter, like the lamprey, and are darned tasty, like the humboldt squid, the world's most effiecient hunter will take care of the problem.

What kinds of beets can you get? I like white, golden, red, and "red and white." I can give you a recipe for beet-potato-herring salad that is served as part of smorgasbord. And I'm sure there is a borscht recipe floating around on the forum...I also love borscht--hot and cold!

If there is mayo in that herring and beet salad, then that is one of the things I don't want to see on my plate. I like beets, I like herring, but I had too many holiday sandwiches in my lunch bag at school that had pink herring salad.

My grandma made it with whipped cream...my aunt makes it with MW. I make it with sour cream...but was thinking I could use Greek Yogurt instead or "pseudo" sour cream made from cottage cheese and Greek Yogurt. I haven't tried that--yet.It is pink...but why couldn't one do an oil-vinegar dressing for it? Have you tried that, TL?
