Eat Your Beets
But really if you like apples or applesauce you will love this. The apples really give the beets a sweet taste.

On the small side of a cheese grater, grate 1 beet to every one to two apples. I think one to one is a perfect ration but see what works best for your family.
*I keep the peels on my veggies because they have such high amounts of nutrients. In beets they have a high concentration of betalains in the peel. Ideally I would like to use organic especially since I am using the peel.
Beets have a lot of health benefits such as powerful nutrient compounds that help protect against heart disease, birth defects and certain cancers, especially colon cancer.
