Beets are deadly serious.

The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious.

  1. Very poetic and Tom Jones kinda sexy. And yes, I agree, beets are deadly serious, that is why they are the favourite veg. of the Balkans and Eastern Europe. 🙂 There is no joking around with the beets.
