Beets scared me a little at first, but now I make them all the time!  You can use them in so many different ways! After this blog, you'll be a pro too!

First cut the beet greens off (read below blog for use) and the root.

Beet 1
Place in a small pot with about 2 inches of water in it.

Beet 2
Cover and let steam for about 20-30 minutes. (make sure you add water if it gets too low!)

Beet 3
The beets are done when they are fork tender.  Remove them from the water, place in a bowl and stick in the fridge. 

When the beets have cooled, you can easily peel the skins off.


Then slice, dice or puree for your favorite recipes!  So easy!

My favorite way to use beets is in a salad!  I love the nice cold, sweet bite you get from them!  They are also excellent thinly slice in a sandwich.
