    I was sometimes given pickled beetroot as a child, and as a result I wouldn't touch beetroot for 40 years or so. Then a few years ago there was some beetroot in our organic veg box delivery, and I discovered that raw beetroot , sliced into a salad, is quite nice. I still don't like it cooked; and as for pickled: I believe that the punishment should fit the crime, so the inventor of pickled beetroot should be immersed in vinegar until his flesh becomes flabby and tasteless.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    I like it roasted mixed up with spuds and parsnip for a great Sunday dinner accompaniment .
    I also have a beetroot shot before every major sports event. This was more than a bit vomit inducing the first few times, but stuck with it and now don't have any qualms about knocking it back.

    Actually I have had cold borscht (main ingredient: beetroot juice) a few times, and I quite liked that.

    I love cooked beetroot on salads. I agree with wheezing donkey - nectar.
