Vegetable of the day: Homegrown Chioggia beets

I love beets. Others in the family not so much (well PP does). I have three favorite beet dishes:
1) cook them, cool them, peel them, slice them, serve with arugula, goat cheese, and tyhyme vinagrette (our salads are not really like this..)
2) grate them raw with potatoes and fry them up (like Swedish rårakor)
3) pickled beets on top of Swedish pytt-i-panna
Mmmm... they taste best if you pull them out of your own garden, and beets are nearly foolproof to grow, at least here in NJ. (photo by me)
