How to Roast Beets
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F with rack in the middle position. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.(Cut off most of the leafy tops, if still attached. Wash and scrub the beet thoroughly.)Wrap the beet loosely with foil (no need to dry them first) and transfer them to the baking sheet.Roast until you can easily slide a skewer to the center without any resistance, about 1 hour for medium sized beets.Let cool 15 minutes or so, then trim the stems and root ends. Use a paper towel or food prep gloves to rub off the skins.
