This is a question My Arch-nemesis

I lived in fear of a Darth Vader-esque school dinner lady who stood me perpetually at the naughty table for refusing to eat mushy peas. An ordeal made worse after I was caught spooning the accursed veg into her wellies. Who, we ask, has wrecked your life?

Thanks to Philly G for the suggestion

You can turn this round...
Next time you're doing a roast, chuck a couple in with the tatties. You will turn to the dark side.

mrs speed had that the other day
I promptly told her that that was the food of the devil and that when I come to power I shall give an order to the armed forces to carpet bomb all beetroot crops in the world.

100% true

the shits in vinegar are truly heinous...
however, get cooked beetroot not in vinegar, grated and put in the mix for a chocolate cake makes it soooo moist you'll wonder how you ever hated them. Trust me.

I too hate beetroot
At about 7 months pregnant I once found myself feeling faint and nauseous, swaying as if to pass out, in a greengrocery shop.

I staggered outside for air, glancing back just long enough to spot the huge display of boiled beetroot next to where I'd been standing. The smell had knocked me sick.

You can hardly eat in Poland without the filthy stuff showing up. I reckon they even hide it in curries.

I know how you feel...
my Mum has always got boiled beetroot in the fridge and it honks.

Actually, I love them.
I prefer the ones in vinegar. I've been known to get a can of them and eat half of it myself with dinner, because no one else will touch them.

Paired with a nice light German beer they're the bee's knees.

in New Zealand they put them in McDonalds food and call it a Kiwi Burger
I didn't have the courage to try one, as the thought of eating bread, beef, beetroot, cheese and onion in the same bite made me want to spew

Australia and New Zealand -
I always forget to say NO BEETROOT when ordering a burger and they always put a massive thick slice on.

It's always too late when you take it off as the purple juice has already contaminated and ruined the burger.
