Cooking Fresh Beets
Fresh beets are very healthy and a colorful addition to the table. Boiling is the simplest way of cooking fresh beets.
Yield: cooked beets
- 4 medium beets
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Cut off the greens of the beets and wash them gently, trying not to break the skin.
Place washed beets in a large pot. Pour water until beets are covered. Optional: at this point you can add 2 tablespoons sugar, if you like the sweet taste.
Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 45 minutes (depending on size) or until beets can easily be pierced through with a fork.
Let them cool a little. Gently rub the beets to remove the outer layer of skin.
