Nature's Candy

My hubster and I have never had beets as the centerpiece of any dish. I only have two references in my memory. One is seeing them all mushy in salads and looking like pieces of canned cranberry sauce. The other is Skeeter telling Doug that they're nature's candy. When I saw them at farmers market, I was hesitant to try them until I asked a friend how to cook them. Her recipe was simple, so I went for it. The outcome? Well, it's a texture we'll have to get used to. They definitely taste like a healthy root vegetable. They're like a cross between a carrot and potato. In theory, it sounds lovely. However, we're not quite used to it yet.
