I hate beets

I'm pretty much always the opposite of a finicky eater.  When I was a kid, if you put in on my plate, or based it around the table at a family Thanksgiving, I would eat a small helping.  With one exception--beets. If beets were on my place, I wouldn't eat anything on the plate.

My distaste for beets is so deep that I couldn't remember what they taste like, only that they are disgusting.

But now I know. According beet expert and advocate Irving Goldman beets "taste like dirt."
