Beets Cooked or Uncooked?
 
I have a Question about beet's I'm new here so I hope this is the place for a question.

Now My question is I got my first beets in and I always loved beets in a can so I tryed one uncooked and it burned my mouth and throat to the point of getting blisters in my mouth I'm not sure if I should eat the rest even if I cook them . Help if you know what I did wrong or if I should even eat them.

Thanks Dannyboy

I have never heard of that happening. I have eaten raw beets before and I know they are served raw in saladsoccasionally. Maybe it was the variety of beet? What was the varied you planted? I usually plant Detroit Dark Red.

Sounds like you may be sensitive to something in beets. Beets should be fine, raw or cooked.

Beets aren't very acidic, and have no capcaisin that I'm aware of. Maybe you're allergic to raw beets?

Raw beets can burn your mouth? I never came across anyone saying that before either. I hope it still didn't have pesticide or something on it.

This link may shed some light:

What are the symptoms of beet allergy

Selkie 08-18-2011 05:12 PM

Raw beets aren't very pleasant to deal with or eat. Cook them first.

I like mine pickled or made into Harvard Beets, but simply cooked is a good place to start.

Dawgluver 08-18-2011 05:13 PM

Hmm. OP can eat cooked beets, though. Might be more of a contact dermatitis. Interesting link, Steve!

I do not like cooked beets, though I'll eat them in salad or soup (i.e. Borscht), but I do like raw beets, alwasy have. Simply grated with some dressing, or without. Never heard of Not being able to eat raw beets. I believe you can eat all common vegitables raw.

Obviously, but that is not what I was refering to. Someobody said that you cannot eat raw beets.

Raw beets are delicious.

I shred them very finely and dress with a horseradish or wasabi vinaigrette.

CharlieD 08-22-2011 08:03 AM

or little mayo, crushed garlic and some walnuts, yum.

next time i make rasolis, (potato salad w/ diced beets and pickles) i will top it off with shredded raw beets 'n nuts. btw charlied, do you recognize this potato salad as resembling a russian dish?

CharlieD 08-22-2011 01:27 PM

I do not know what rasolis are. I suppose I could have googled it.

CharlieD 08-22-2011 01:27 PM

Hm, google did not help much.

CharlieD 08-22-2011 01:30 PM

I think you are refering to the Russian beet salad called Vinegrette.

Boiled potato
Boiled beets
Boiled carrots
Pickles
Saur crout
Cooked white beens
Onion (raw)
Oil for dressing
