I’d never had beets until my sister came to visit earlier in the year. She was making us Turkey Asian Meatballs with a side of steamed beets. It sounds like a slightly wonky meal but it was actually quite delicious.
The beets are nice and earthy tasting, my sister said they reminded her of fresh corn. I could kind of see her point but at the same time its completely different. Its earthy but not sweet like corn.
The only time I had ever had beets before my sister came to visit was pickled beets on salad, I always found eating them amusing since it turned my salad purple.
