Microwaved Beets

Wash beets well. Leave tails intact but trim off the beet greens, leaving about an inch of stem, and set aside.

(Perhaps for Greek greens? The greens from these white beets were particularly tasty.)

For small (2 ounce) whole beets -- place in a single layer in a microwave-safe dish. Cover tightly.

Microwave for approximately this long (actual time will vary depending on the beets themselves and the

power of your microwave).

Eight ounces total - 8 minutes

One pound total - 12 minutes

1 1/2 pounds - 16 minutes

For large whole beets - - place in a container just large enough to hold the beets. Cover tightly. Midway

through the cooking time, remove cover, turn the beets, cover and continue.

1 10-ounce beet - 20 minutes

6 beets (2 1/2 pounds) - 25 to 30 minutes
