The too-cute package says these are “baby beets infused in a sweetfire marinade.” Since I gave pickled beets a thumbs up on Day 16, I figured they were a safe bet. (Plus I’m trying to psych myself up for finally trying that dusty jar of borsch in my cupboard. Maybe tomorrow?) These little bites were packed with over-the-top earthiness — which is what I’ve discovered I like best about beets. But I’m not too keen on this particular sweet/spicy marinade. So I guess I prefer my beets naked — hold the love.
