Comments: Beautiful served in a glass bowl at the dinner table, also make
a very nice snack with fresh bread (like rye) and a glass of beer. Serve
hot, quartered beets for dinner garnished with 2 tablespoons of crumbled
blue cheese and a tablespoon of toasted walnuts. (That amount serves 2 to
3.) The flavors are wonderfully complementary.
