Fresh beets without the mess

If you love beets but hate the mess of making them, or even if you think you hate beets, Love Beets are worth a try. Love Beets are baby beets, each about the size of a golf ball, already cooked and peeled and often marinated for extra flavor. They come plain (vacuum-packed) and in white-wine balsamic, mild vinegar and Sweetfire flavors. The latter is a little spicy and a little sweet but not so much that is detracts from the beet’s natural flavors. It was our favorite when we taste-tested some samples.

Love Beets cost $2.99 for a clam-shell holding about 9 beets. However, you can get a $1 off coupon when you “like” their Facebook page
