I hate beets. It's really the only vegetable that I dislike, but I love that you are growing and enjoying them.
The first time I tasted organically grown celery, about 30 seconds from being harvested, it was a revelation. It didn't taste like crunchy water!~ It tasted salty and mineraly and absolutely delicious.
Not like beets that taste like dirt and blood.

So if you like beets by all means grow and eat them -- I love 'em! But when I am cooking for other people, I leave them out or cook and serve them separately so that those who dislike them can avoid them. They roast up wonderfully in the oven like other root vegetables and winter squash, but for guests I serve those separately in the dish so people can take the ones they like.
