Joking aside, beets get a bad rap before people learn how to handle the
potential bleeding problem. Easiest way: gently brush anything loose
off beets, cut tops off leaving up to an inch of the stems on. Save
the greens for separate use. Wrap the beetroots in aluminum foil,
sealing well. Bake for 45 min. in a medium oven (say, 350=B0F).
Remove, set aside until not too hot to handle. Now, finally, peel them
with a sharp paring knife.

If you grow your own, (they are very adaptable and hardy) the greens
are excellent. Burpee's golden are especially tasty for both the
beetroot and the greens, we think. -aem
