I love beets. Yes, I do. They are so humble. Don't you think?
They're hairy, and ugly and root-ish. But that humility holds such beauty:
These yellow beets were so bright neon yellow, I had trouble focusing my eyes on them.
And the red beet. Oh, that gorgeous red beet. I love how red beets stain my hands for days after I cook with them.
Plus they are delicious with roast chicken!
