If you asked me a month ago if I liked beets I would have made a stink face and let you know how absolutely disgusting I thought they were. Then I received a few beets in my basket and realized I would have to get over my groused out opinion of beets. The truth was I had never actually tried beets. I was just being 5 and sticking my nose in the air at something new. Yes even us adults can bring out a 5 year old attitude sometimes. I tried beet chips first and realized I actually liked them. Hubby and Bubba did too. Since my stink face towards beets was softening, I decided to try them again this wek. I cooked them in the pressure cooker. I paired them with some yummy pasta and they were actually yummy. Who knew! So what is the moral of my story today? Try it and you just might like it. It worked for me. Want to try some beets of your own?

Here's how I did mine.....with the pressure cooker

Give your beets a good wash under the faucet. Slice both ends off of the beets. Leave the skin on if you want. I did, but I kind of have this thing..... I hate peeling veggies and I hear it is good to keep the skin on your veggies.You know extra nutrients and all :) Cut your beets into chunks and place into your pressure cooker. Use your cooking rack. Add 2 cups of water. Place your lid on your pressure cooker and turn your stove onto a high heat setting. Once your vent pipe begins rocking gently, set your timer for 15 minutes. Once beets are cooked, turn off the heat. Quickly cool down your beets, sprinkle with a pinch or two of salt. Enjoy!

    1. hmm...that is a good question. I can't think of what to compare them to, but they are yummy with some seasoning and butter.

  2. I have tried beets and don't really care for them...well the red beets anyway. Golden beets? That's another story altogether! Try pureeing them with a pinch of sea salt and a bit of sage and covering cream cheese with them; makes a wonderful spread!

  4. I love beets! They are such a pretty color and taste sweet but not overly so. My favorite way to eat them is in a beet salad. I chop up cooked beets (canned works well for this, too). Add some finely diced red onion, salt and pepper, zest and juice of 1 lemon, and some olive oil. I also tend to add in whatever herbs I have on hand- thyme and rosemary are my favorites. I don't even bother to chill this salad. Room temp is fine.
