I have always loved beets, but my recent love of pickling reintroduced me to making beets at home. Recently I have roasted golden beets and I have boiled them. These are the boiled golden beets.
It’s easy to boil up beets to make beet salads or anything else. This combination is very low in fat and calories, as well as being nutritious.
To boil the beets add:
- 1-1/2 pounds beets, trimmed, skinned and cubed
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar
I add a sprinkle of Italian Herbs, Savory or Herbs de Provence to the boil for flavor.
Place the beets in a large saucepan and add water to cover and the lemon juice or vinegar. This will help to keep the beets from bleeding. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the pot and let cool.
