I know beets can be included in salads and some main dishes, however we boiled them and then peeled them and cut them into slices and served as a side to our meals. I also snacked on them when I felt a little hungry.

1.- Cut off stems and wash thoroughly to remove all the dirt -keep in mind beets grow underground.
2.- Place the beets inside a large enough saucepan to fit them and pour water into saucepan. Boil at medium heat.
3.- When beets feel soft take them out of the water and using a table knife to peel and holding beet in place with a fork. Allow cooling off before enjoying.
You can either slice or chop the beet or even grate it. I prefer enjoying it straight out of the refrigerator so I put in plastic zip top bags in the refrigerator and then serve.
