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? Beets are particularly rich in folate, which has been found to prevent neural-tube birth defects and aid in the fight against heart disease and anemia.
