Baby Beets

I have always been a fan of growing Beets here in Utah they just grow so easy! This year I grew from seed Renee's Garden her Exclusive Jewel Toned Blend and they are LOVELY!  A blend of burgundy Red Sangria, Golden and candy-striped Chioggia beets. They have been high yields with a sweet earthy flavor and rich glowing colors! I LOVE oven roasted beets and the greens on tops are great too give them a try.

Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 350 clean Beets and cut off the Greens set aside for later. Toss Beets in Olive oil just to coat place on a cookie sheet with tin foil for easier clean up. Roast beets for 45-1:30 depending on size and time of year. I roasted my Summer Baby beets for 50 mins last night and they were perfect. Take beets out of oven let cool and pull skins off slice and serve with butter, Salt and Pepper. 
 So easy to add to a summer salad with feta cheese delicious!

Hi Kendra,
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I will gladly follow you as I think you are right and we have a lot in common.
I love beets. I haven't tried growing them in my garden yet, but just a few days ago my mom gave me a big bunch from her garden. I will try roasting them.
Have a nice day!
