I have a number of over-sized beets. I hate to throw them out but they are
about a foot long and too big for pickles. These are giants that my good-hearted
brother gave me 'cause he didn't know what to do with them.
very hard to know if they are any good or
not until you do some chopping and cooking.
if they are woody you'll know fairly
if you can slice and dice them easily
enough then they are probably ok.
i pickle beets of all sizes. i cut
them into 1/2-1/3 inch cubes, then steam
them until done before adding brine. most
times i cut up onions and put those on top
Beets can be sliced thinly or shredded on a grater and eaten raw in
salads. I am a salad person so that is one of my favorite way to eat
beets. If you are not a salad person then I can give you some recipe.
Cut beets into very small cubes and onions too. In a pan add oil and few
mustard seeds, once the seeds start cracking add the onions and beets
fry them for 10 mins add salt for taste. Taste would be delicious once
you fry them in oil. Another method is shred beets on a grater. Slit few
green chillies, cut onions and few grated coconut. Fry onions and
chilies in oil once the onion are brown add the shredded beets and a
pinch of salt for taste. Close the lid of the pan in a very slow flame.
Check every few mins and when you feel it is cooked well add the coconut
on it. Try these two recipes for beets, I bet you will love it.

Hi Roy, hope I'm not too late and that youve not eaten them but Ive only
just seen your post !! Here's an interesting idea. Cut them in half,
hollow them out a bit and put a daffodil bulb inside and then plant them
!!! In the spring, you'll have a lovely and very unusual display of red
daffs that will amaze your friends ane neighbours Haaaaaaa!
