We cook beets in salted water, then marinate them in a sweet-and-sour red wine mixture. But you can also cook them on the barbecue, squeeze out the juice or eat them raw. They go well with many ingredients, with fish or meat, and are perfect in a vegetarian dish with, for example, goat cheese and balsamic vinegar.
Beetroot has a wonderful flavor, sweet and earthy, and a very nice texture.
We grow beets in our garden. The young ones are the best and most flavorful, but the flavor also varies from type to type: yellow, red, striped, round or long.
