    Hi Putchy, Look up the Chioggia beet on google. You will see pictures of the beat. This will explain the 'stripes'. Imagine if we did this with apples(and didn't mind the seeds nor core). Take a slice of bread. Spread -spreadable cream cheese on it. Slice an Apple into paper thin slices- (see through) Now take a cookie cutter and make a perfectly round thin apple slice with the cookie cutter. Then, cut the bread w/the cheese on it w/same cutter Stack them- this is the simple hors d'oeuvre

    The variety of beet is red and white striped inside. You do nothing more than prepare and slice the beet and to achieve the stripes. This is a really clever use of it.
