How to Roast Beets

To roast fresh beets, cut the greens off (they can also be cooked and eaten), scrub the outsides, rub with a small amount of olive oil, wrap tightly in foil and place on a baking sheet.  Roast on 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes depending on size.  (a knife should be easily inserted)

When the beets have cooled they can be used right away or kept in the fridge for a week or so.  To use, unwrap and gently rub the skin-it will come right off.  Slice and enjoy.
