Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash and trim beet tops and roots.
Place beets in a foil-lined shallow pan with 1/4" inch of water.
Cover pan with aluminum foil.
Bake 60 minutes, or until a knife pierces the beets easily. Roasting time depends on the size of the beets.
Remove beets from oven and let cool slightly before handling.
Use paper towel or paring knife to rub/scrape skin off beets (hint: wear disposble gloves to keep my fingers from turning red).
