Last year, my husband discovered beets.
This year, we planted some in our garden.
I grew up eating beets, but we always either boiled them or cooked them in the oven. But, this time, I tried them in the crockpot and they were outstanding.
- 4-5 medium beets
- 1/4 C water
Begin by scrubbing the beets (but leave the skin on). Place the beets into a small crockpot and pour in 1/4 C water.
Cover, and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
Carefully remove from the crockpot and peel (use caution because they will be really hot!). We found it easiest to peel the better on a plate with a knife and fork.
Slice and serve warm.
