I guess this could go in the recipe section as well, but it seems to me to fit better here... Jim's signature inspired this thread. I was reading it and thought how I have never liked beets. Then I thought of the fact that the only kind I've ever had have been canned. I don't like any canned vegetable at all, save corn, and that really doesn't count since it's not really a vegetable. Soooo...what's a good way to prepare beets? Not recipes, necessarily (although those are always good too) but just some basic prep ideas. Are they good raw?
