young beans are good raw too
Especially if you peel the coating off each individual bean, the beans are sweet but the skin is bitter.

I remember Dad growing them when I was a kid, Cannot remember if he peeled them but I cant remember not liking them. We ate a lot of home grown ragout.
Usually tomotoe,s, Zucchini, Onion and broad beans stew with braised lamb chops.

They are a very polarising  vegetable, much like Brussel Sprouts :)

Personally I'm not much of a fan of beetroot but really most every other veg I enjoy :)

I love what we just call beets!  But my mother always served it with a Harvard sauce.  She would cook, peel, slice the beats into disks and then make the sauce.  It was apple cider vinegar, butter and brown sugar.  All combined and heated till the sugar dissolved.  She would then mix up a little water and corn starch, turn heat to high and add it till it was a nice thick sauce.

I am not a big acidic flavor fan, but it was almost like a sweet n sour and was very good.
