pickled beets

Do you like them?

I can eat enough of them to make myself physically ill. It's kind of sad, but not really. Is this a southern thing????

Not a southern thing, I don't think. My very Irish, native New Englander Gramma made them all the time. Yum!

I have never tried them pickled. Being from Eastern Europe I eat plenty of beets in other forms - beet salad, borscht, beets and herring. And I do love them, esp. roasted. I tend to be picky about pickled things so I will either love or hate them, I bet.

I voted no. I had a traumatic beet experience as a child and cannot stand the sight of them to this day.

i disliked them as a kid, but now i enjoy a couple when visiting a salad bar.
Hmm. I thought I had tried beets in all its forms, but I've never tried 'em pickled. Wonder if I can get 'em here in Chicago.

You don't have to blow out my flame to make yours burn brighter.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Love 'em!

My mom used to make pickled herring salad...herring in white wine/vinegar, potatoes, pickled beets, chopped hazelnuts, apples...yum! OK, everyone who wasn't German hated it.

I even pickled my own beets last summer, but they tasted just like Aunt Nellie's in the jar (which is so much easier).

I don't like them at all. I think they taste like nail polish. I got caught in Hurricane Wilma during my vacation and the hotel had made pickled beat sandwiches for us to eat. I'm thankful that we had food to eat during that time, but if I never see another pickled beat for as long as I live it will be too soon. yuck!

Love them. I grow my own beets and pickle them. The best part is the color! Beautiful. And they just don't taste as good if I use white beets.

ditto geeky - roasted beets are yummy.

You know, I haven't had them since I was a kid, but I remember liking them okay. I may have to try them again.

I like them.

Pickled turnip is better. YUM.

Nope, it's not a southern thing at all. Where I live people make pickled beets every fall. I love them.

I'm another Pittsburgh girl (living in OK) and I LOVE pickled beats. My mom always throws a couple of hard boiled eggs into the brine and they turn pink and are soooo yummy! We only have them at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I can't wait...
