The results are in, the votes have been tallied... and nothing really turned out the way I expected it to. But isn't that just how life is?

Meanwhile, if you are considering cooking fresh beets, may I recommend this course of action?
-Wrap them in foil
-Bake at 375 for 45 minutes
-Unwrap, and peel skins under cold water.
-Replace beets in their foil sleepingbags, and cut them up.
-Douse them in red wine vinegar and white sugar.
-Re-wrap them, and cook for another five minutes.
-Eat them. Mmm.
I'm only suggesting this because I just cooked three beets three different ways, and this was BY FAR the best way. Seriously tasty. And good for you, too. Of course, the draw-back is that you're hands (and your kitchen) will look like you've been avidly murdering someone when you're done, but it's it's a small price to pay.
