Roasted in Foil
Wash beets and discard the stems by slicing them off. Lay out on a counter two large pieces of foil and add 2 beets to each foil and lightly close the foil. Place the two prepared foils on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees F for 45 min. to 1 hour or until the center of the beets can easily be poked with a fork. Let the beets cook for 15 minutes before peeling the skin with hands or using a paper towel to lightly rub the skins off.
Cooked in a Slow Cooker
Place 4 beets that are washed with stems removed in a slow cooker with 1 inch of water. Cover and cook on low for 2-4 hours or until the beets are tender. Remove from the slow cooker (or crock pot) and let the beets cook for 15 minutes before peeling the skin with hands or using a paper towel to lightly rub the skins off.
