I find the best way to enjoy beets is to bake or grill them whole. Here are the pictures of the beet grilling process. But first the basics.
- Either bake or grill them for about 60 minutes more or less to your preference.
- If you bake them, set the stove at 350 or 400 for 45 to 60 minutes. It doesn't need to be exact.
- If you grill them, keep them off direct heat for 45 to 90 minutes.

These are beets from my garden. I just planted more beets last week. It is a good idea to put some in your garden now for a fall crop.
