My favorite way to eat beets these days is a cold buttermilk soup. Nothing could be easier to make. Boil, bake or steam beets until done. Peel. Puree in a blender with buttermilk and some ice cubes. Pour into a container and season with salt and dried dill. Eat cold.
Chiogga Beets. Beautiful raw but the rings disappear when cooked.

Beautiful pink soup!
