Every summer I go to the farmers markets and get fresh vegetables. Lately the farmers in our area are planting many different types of beets. This recipe is simple and the tender young beets are great.

What a delight! I have to admit that I had to use jarred beats....I went to 4 different stores and couldn't find any!! But I just had to make I went ahead with the recipe since I was grilling already tonight. I'm so happy I did...these are wonderful! Just as good cold as they are hot. I used lots of black pepper, because I love it. Eliminated the salt, since they were jarred. Thanks for sharing! Made in honor of your win in Football Tag, Week 1! Happy Birthday!!
