The word for beets in Italian is barbabietole.
The beets were in the CSA box with the other vegetables I used to make the prior meals.
This beet salad was for dinner one night. The heirloom tomatoes came from the box of organic tomatoes I bought.
To roast beets you cut off the top and bottom. You roast them at 400 degrees for 45 minutes in the oven.
I let the beets cool a bit after taking them out of the oven. Then I used a knife to cut around in a circle to remove the hard skin.
I used the onion that was in the CSA box too.
