directions

  • Wash the beets and cut off the stalks but do not remove the skins or they will bleed while cooking.
  • Drop into a saucepan of boiling salted water and cook until they are tender. The amount of time will vary depending on their size and age, but it should take between 40 minutes and 1 hour.
  • To determine whether they are sufficiently cooked, press them gently with your fingers.
  • If the skin comes off easily they are done.
  • Remove the beets from the saucepan and peel off the skins. Discard cooking water. Return them to the saucepan and toss for a few minutes with the parsley, chives and butter.
  • Season to taste with a little salt and serve.

    Very easy recipe. I couldn't find baby beets so after cooking and peeling, I quartered them. Went great with a roast chicken. Made for Best of 2012 game.

    I enjoyed my beets cooked this way. Different to my usual baked beets. Far nicer than canned too

    I used canned baby beets & jumped right to step 5. We were rewarded with warm, comfort food with a twist. The chives were unexpected & new to me, but something i'd do again. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
