Alchemy in Golden Beets

Time for a few root vegetable check. I cut one of these beets and peeled back the orange outer layer so you could see the beautiful golden color.

I'd saved this seed from several years ago until I was in a location where I could grow them again. I had about 70% germination rate so the seed aged well, but I planted them too near the carrots and they were crowded out. Unfortunately, I didn't get the quantity I would have liked.

Each bite of this root vegetable in succulent and bursting with flavor. I will find more room for these next year. They seem to light up a serving plate like gold on a platter. I wonder how they'd taste pickled?
