You are so fired for that title.

Oh, nice one!

Try a little butter, salt, and a sprinkle of rice vinegar. Yum.

I love LOVE beet leaves. Make some beet rolls (think cabbage rolls with beet leaves instead of cabbage). My filling is rice with sauted onion, salt and fresh dill.

Oh for some beet leaves.

I was waiting for that comment, Emma ;^)

RR, thanks!

Michael, that sounds worth a try. It might even make it palatable. Thanks!

Clare, now that sounds even better than Michael's suggestion. It actually sounds tasty! And I'd send you some beet leaves if I could (although I have to confess these aren't mine). Fresh, green leaves must be a real treat up there.

Emma beet me to it!!!

Our beets are just barely breaking the soil at the moment. The shoots have sprouted and are already red right from the start.

Beautiful leafy photo.

Robin Andrea, you are so going to cop it from Emma! (I will resist more wordplay.)

Might I suggest those suggestions from Michael and Clare? They sound mighty tasty; I'm sure you and Roger would enjoy them, although you probably have your own favourite ways of beet-eating.

I think I'm reacting the way everyone else has... my first thought was, "These look delicious!"
