I have no idea if there are nutrients in the cooking water. Maybe next time I make them I'll use the cooking water for the marinade.
Bay leaves and cloves are not heretical, just don't poke the cloves into the beets
Whole peppercorns and dill leaves are also used. Even garlic is used nowadays
I love garlic, but I was surprised how much garlic has gotten into modern Danish cooking.
