Went to Farmer's Market and they had a bumper crop of baby beets so I bought some. I've never worked with fresh beets before always using canned, so came to Zaar and picked this one as liked the ease of using the crock pot. Glad I did too, even DH who was adament that he does NOT like beets liked these. His remark was "they have their own distenct taste, not like those canned things" since I had small baby beets I followed another reviewers comment and didn't cube but left whole in the crock pot, other than that followed the directions exactly and glad I did. I added a pat of butter when I took them to the table and that was nice too. Made for "All You can eat Buffet event"

Great way to do beets! Got them ready in the morning and didn't have to fuss with them until dinner time. I used baby beets, so left them whole. Great combination of flavors. Made for Vegie Tag at KittencalsKitchen.com

I never thought to cook beets in my crock pot before. It works very well. I only used 1 tbsp olive oil and I opted for the fresh parsley. The garlic flavor was very subtle in the finished product, but overall, they were delicious. Thanx for sharing!

I was really pleased with how these turned out using the crock pot. Funny, different perspective...I found the garlic is hardly recognizable in the finished product - I'd be tempted to add more next time. I don't think I could eat them as they are, I made them to go into salads...but beets as a side dish isn't something I would normally eat. These will be great with a lettuce leaf or spinach salad, some goat cheese and nuts. Thanks for the idea, I'll be doing this again and playing around with the seasoning. Cheers!

I was anxious to see what crockpot-cooked beets would be like. Acutally, they cooked up very well. I didn't like the predominant garlic flavor, however, and next time would definitely reduce the garlic by half or more. I think, being used to plain boiled beets, it was hard to get used to so much flavor in them. I think leftover beets would make a wonderful salad sprinkled with blue cheese crumbles and walnuts and blue cheese dressing. The part I dreaded about this recipe was peeling all the beets, but it really wasn't that bad once I found the right peeler. The red stain on my hands was gone by evening and I could have avoided that with plastic gloves, I suppose. I would make these again because having them on hand will be useful for a side-dish and a salad.

The crockpot cooked the beets very nicely, so putting them in there is a nice idea. Perhaps it was those particular beets,but usually I like them and I wasn't really crazy about the flavor of them here. They were better with some lemon salad dressing.
