How to cook beets..
Baked beets are tasty and allow you to simply get them cooking and forget about them until the timer goes off.
Especially helpful if you don't have any room left on your stove top for one more pot or pan! Plus, they're very simple to make.
Unlike other cooking methods, there is no need to scrub the beets with water, because the water would cause the beets to steam. So simply clean off any dirt with a paper towel, if desired. Trim the roots and stems to 1/2", but there's no need to cut the beets farther than that.
Place the beets in an oven-proof baking dish and cover (foil works fine). Bake at 400 degrees for one hour, or until tender.
Remove from oven and let cool. Then simply slip the skins and root off with your fingers. You can leave the tail on if you're eating the beets whole, or take it off.
Beets can be chopped, sliced or diced at this point.
