Notes

Buy beets that are similar in size to promote even cooking.
Wear gloves when washing, peeling and chopping, to avoid staining your hands.
Use a vegetable peeler, instead of a knife.
Don’t forget to cover the pot, when boiling. This will speed up the cooking process.
Avoid discarding the nutritious beet greens. Use them as you would collard greens; saute with a dash of oil and seasoning to create a the nutritious dish
