Beets (beetroot) seem to be one of those vegetables you either love or hate. The rich maroon flesh of this root vegetable is naturally sweet and nutritious, and the leaves are also edible. If you have been making do with canned beets, you simply must try fresh beets for true flavor even beet-haters will enjoy in such recipes as Chocolate Beet Cake, Pickled Beets, Red Flannel Hash, and more beet recipes.
