Our favorite method of cooking beets is roasting.  True beet color and flavor is accentuated. This is one of the easiest recipes you will find. Scrub the dirt from the nooks and crannies well.

4-6 medium sized beets, scrubbed well with tops removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Sprig of fresh rosemary (optional)

                                                                                                     Preheat oven to 375º F
1. Coat the beets with olive oil and salt (add rosemary if desired), place in a covered baking dish, or if you prefer- wrap completely in aluminum foil, fold all seams and place into a baking pan.
2. Bake  for one hour, more or less depending on beet size.  Check for doneness by inserting a cake tester or fork into the beet- it should slide in smoothly. Return to oven if necessary checking for doneness every 15 minutes.
4. Peel and slice.
