Recipe ingredients:

  • baked beets
  • 3 -4 medium unpeeled unwashed whole beets
  • dressed baked beets
  • 1 1⁄2-2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1⁄2-1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • baked beets in cream
  • 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon juice

Preparation of the recipe:

Baked Beets: Preheat oven to 400°.

Trim roots and stems to 1/2″, do not cut beets further!

;do not wash beets!

,if there is dirt that bothers you, wipe it off with a paper towel; moisture will cause the beets to steam and that is not what you want.

Place beets in a casserole, cover with the lid and seal the entire casserole tightly with foil; bake at 400° for 60-90 minutes.

When beets are cool enough to handle, remove the roots and skins; if you’re using the beets whole leave the tails on, otherwise remove them; the skin can be easily slipped off with your fingers.

Beets are ready to be used in any recipe calling for cooked beets or try one of the two listed here.

Dressed Baked Beets: Put the skinned beets, whole, diced or sliced in a saucepan or skillet; add the butter, sugar, salt and pepper; heat and serve.

Baked Beets in Cream: Thinly slice skinned baked beets; heat in saucepan or skillet with cream, add salt and pepper; just before serving add lemon juice.
