Letting Life Lead
I like beets.
I don’t like peeling raw beets or having my fingers red stained for days because I never have gloves handy when I pick up beets, so they get baked whole like potatoes. Save the greens for tossing in salad or soup.
I bake my beets at around 375F to 400F for about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size (just like my bacon). When a poke with a fork or knife goes through easily they are done. Peel them after a shock of cold water. The skin slips right off if pushed with fingers or knife.
Cube, slice, dice, chop or jullienne. Pickle, season, toss in a salad, or eat them as is. They become even more sweet, in my opinion, when cooked this way.
Lazy cooking is smart cooking!
