I think Popeye is guilty of false advertising - look more like arugula (rocket) to me. Beets me why.

You always have to say "Mahi Mahi" down here. If you say you caught and ate a dolphin, people who don't fish will look at you like you just said you caught and bar-b-qued a baby.

beets

It maybe two years between post, but that only means I haven't posted on here. I was reading a recipe book for sailing , which was talking about beets and onions. I just wanted to make sure I was thinking of the right thing. Given that some things have different names in different countries and not everyone lives in the good old USA.

Well its quality that counts not quantity. Trust we managed to actually answer your question and I hope you didn't mind us having a bit of fun with it.

Ah...I eagerly await your fourth post, asking if onions are indeed onions, sometime in 2015.

Re: beets

I wish the OP would quit beeting around the bush and give us this recipe. Beets are sweet, onions not so.
