1. Love fresh beets!

They deveop the best flavor by roasting. Scrub beets, wrap in aluminum foil and in a shallow baking pan, set in a 350 degree oven for about an hour (depending on the size of the beets) or until they can be easily pierced with a knife. When tender, let the beets rest to cool for at least fifteen minutes, then slip the skins off. They come off very easily, but stain your hands easily as well, so either wear gloves or wash your hands thoroughly and immediately after handling. Once they are roasted and peeled, you can slice or dice them any way you want. My personal favorite is in a sweet-sour sauce of orange juice sauce (with some zest) and apple cider vinegar to taste thickened with arrowroot or constarch (to maintain that fabulous color). Pour 1/2 C. orange juice & 1/4 C. vinegar mixed with 1/4 C. water into a saucepan, heat until the sauce is just at a boil then add beets until they are heated through. Double or triple the sauce recipe depending on the amount of beets.

Messy but easy.
