      I promised myself that this year I would prepare fresh beets -- not from a can. I know beets are not the most popular veggie, but I just love them. First it was canned harvard beets as a child, then canned pickled beets as I grew older. They are fabulous in a salad, and provide so much color. Soooooooo, last week fresh beets were on sale, and I decided to take the plunge. For this foray into unchartered waters, I picked chia's recipe, and I really enjoyed making a recipe with fresh beets. Easy peasy! The cumin flavor is not too strong, but provides a nice subtle reminder that these are not your typical beets from a can.
