Roasted Beets

We planted some beets in our garden t my DH's request, because he loves them. I had never tried them. Here is the way I absolutely love them now:

Chunk them in to small pieces. Toss them with just a little oil, put them on a well oiled pan, and roast at about 375 for at least an hour. They need some time. When they are fork tender, sprinkle with salt and a little goat cheese crumbled. The beets get sweet, and te salt and cheese is the perfect compliment. Just had some for dinner tonight!

I love beets. I have been pickling & canning my beets. In my garden are 3 kinds.
yellow, red, & candy cane . Yum I love beets. The gourmet yellow taste totally different. A much light bright taste.

I also love them roasted.

I love beets too, but they're way too high in sugar for me right now. I'm hoping to add them in moderation when I get to maintenance.

I love beets and have tried to grow them in my garden more than once. So far, no luck, they just form long roots and lots of greens (which we also love). I make high hills with lots of amendments, but I must not be making the right amendments? Any ideas?

O wow. You've never had the goumet yellow. Do you have organics sold any where you live? I grow mine in the spring and fall.

The red beets are harder and more eathy tasting.

The yellow are sweeter and more delicate. I just saw some at the organic farmers.( They are sometimes harder to grow.)

The candy cane beets are lighter fresher tasting.

I love beets.I hope you get a chance to taste them YUM!!!

Diana, this was our first year with a garden, and we just dug a row and put seeds in the ground. I think we just got lucky!

Esther, I have a couple different really terrific local grocery stores close to me. I am going on a beet hunt this weekend.

You may see the yellow beets as "golden", at least that's what they're called here. I have to dig up the last of our golden beets from the garden, maybe hopefully finish them up early next week. My dad canned the last of the reds this past week. Sugary or not, I love 'em. They are great tossed with coconut oil, s&p, and roasted, too.
