I am glad that I started this thread as you have all given me some wonderful ideas. Thanks.

I like raspberry vinegar for pickling beets; t gives a wonderful flavor. I use the pickling solution later to make a vinegarette for salad.

thanks for the idea. never thought of using beets as a burger topper.

don't forget to grate cooked beets with fresh horseradish. you can add a little vinegar if you wish.
my mil introduced me to this combo many years ago. it's not easter at our house without beets-n-horseradish.

i like to add chunks of farmer's cheese and hard boiled eggs, and make a meal out of it with some rye bread.

I've never thought of reusing the liquid in a dressing. I'll try that sometime.

Did you ever notice beet slices on a salad bar? Sometimes pickled, sometimes unpick led. I prefer the pickled but the unpickled are fine too.

Are you using pickled beets? That really sounds good.

It's not really much different that using a pickled cucumber which is what goes on our burgers here.

I've had baby beets served with pasta...really good! I like beets with almost any stew or roasted item. They are great roasted, turned in fresh orange juice and dill!

You can also pickle some eggs in that left-over beet juice!

When I roast beets I toss them with grated orange zest, a dash of honey and S&P. I think orange is a wonderful compliment for the beet flavour.

I've never added cinnamon. I have, however, used freshly grated nutmeg when I roast parsnips.
