Step 1: Remove greens Remove the greens from 1 pound of beets, but leave 2 inches of stem. Tip Steam the tops of the beets if they are young. The greens are an excellent source of vitamins. Step 2: Boil beets Boil the beets in water until they are tender, adding water as necessary. Young beets may require 30 to 40 minutes; mature beets up to 2 hours to cook. Step 3: Microwave beets Microwave beets in a 1-quart casserole for 12 minutes as an alternative. Step 4: Bake beets Bake the beets at 325 degrees until they're tender as another alternative. Allow at least 30 minutes for young beets and 1 hour for mature beets. Step 5: Roast beets Wrap sliced beets in aluminum foil with seasoning and butter and roast them over hot coals on a grill. Step 6: Cool beets Cool the beets slightly and remove their skins. Tip Beets contain a lot of vitamin C, plus potassium, magnesium and folic acid, and can be mashed for a healthy and delicious baby food. Step 7: Season Season to taste, and serve with melted butter and parley. Paprika, horseradish, walnuts, and goat cheese also make tasty additions. Did You Know?
