I love beets. Ideas?

... they are too much of a pain to prepare fresh.

I actually think canned beets are pretty darned good, but I rarely think of getting them. When I do, I just heat them up in a pan, drain, then mix them with a little butter and balsamic vinegar.

Anyone have any other ideas? They are SO good for you!

Nothing wrong with canned beets I like to put a couple of cans in the fridge so they are ready when I need them and then eat them on a salad

Beets - YUCK!!!

oh, i hate beets, too, lol. just suggesting something. (there are 3 things i hate. uncooked bell pepper, beets, and pickled pig's feet.)
another thing: my Parents soak canned beets, liquid and all, in white vinegar with sliced white onion.

i've had those rosy pickled eggs before, hanart. can't say i'm a fan, but i love eggs pickled in white vinegar and garlic. they sell them at the bar and at the beer distributor, but i figured, why pay? so i swiped the recipe from a jar of Penrose ones and made my own.
