Garden to Table Roasted Beets

I was in the Super Market the other day and looked at a bunch of beets, there was 1 large beet and 2 small beets in a bunch and it was selling for $2.79 a bunch.  The thought ran through my mind how grateful I am that we have over a bushel of fresh beets ready for harvest in my garden.  Fresh roasted beets are delicious the roasting really brings out the earthy rich flavor of the beet.

Fresh Beets Washed and Dryed
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Cut the tops and most of the root stem off of the beet and wash them
Dry the beets by letting them sit out for a while or pat them dry
Place the beets in a heavy foil packet
Generously cover the beets with olive oil, salt and pepper
Seal the foil packet 
Place in a preheated 375 degree oven and roast for 1 1/2 hour
Remove the packet from the oven and set aside
Allow the beets to reach room temperature then peel the skin from the beet
The beets are ready for use in recipes or serve, they are delicious.
