As a kid, I developed a real hatred of beets, but I only had the red ones out of a can. The smell and texture still bother me to this day, and they remain the only food aversion I have as an adult. I was searching for some interesting Thanksgiving side dish recipes and I came across some using root vegetables, including golden beets. I assume fresh vs canned is a big difference. How about golden beets vs red ones? I'm thinking of taking a big step.
