    We have an overabundance of beets this year. One can only use so many pickled beets, and harvard beets do not appeal. What do you do with beets?

    I like them just as simple, boiled beets .... of course, with butter and salt/pepper! You can freeze them, to reheat later.

    And for me, you can't have too many pickled beets!

    If you have way too much donate them to the local food banks or senior centers.
    I personally don't eat beets to me they taste like dirt sorry. I did make a salad last night and put beet slices on my salad.

    Good suggestion to share your produce with a soup kitchen or food pantry.

    What would I do with them? I would not plant them in the first place, I don't like beets in any shape or form.
