        Roasted whole with the skin on until cooked but not too soft. Then peeled, diced and sautéed with the greens in coconut oil.

          My grandmother told me that if you peel them before cooking the color runs out. I just boil them and eat with butter and salt.

            Cook it, freeze it in peeled chunks, and purée it in food processor with frozen berries, a splash of coconut milk, and some sweetener if necessary for amazingly beetiful sorbet. It is a pretty magenta color and so so good.

                I love roasting them unpeeled in coconut oil. I then peel and slice them when they are cool. I pickle them in a balsamic vinaigrette to use on salads.

                Be aware that red beets may change the color of your urine and/or poo. Can be startling for a hypochondriac!

                    I grow my own, I boil mine. If they are dirty just give them a wash under the tap, DO NOT PEEL AND DO NOT CUT HEAD OR TAIL OFF AS THEY WILL BLEED OUT AND NOT TASTE GOOD. They are a bit like boiling potatoes, stick a knife in them slowly to see if they are cooked. Just run them under the tap and rub and the skin will fall off. I used to slice into chunks and sauté in balsamic vinegar, take off heat then crumble Roquefort cheese some sesame seeds and drizzle olive oil yum yum

                      Oh gosh! You are all making me hungry, fabulous ideas, thank you! They have always scared me a little but cause they can be expensive and I never really knew what to do with them.

                      Great advice about not peeling and losing taste etc.. Honestly the first thing I would have done was to top and tail them and peel I'll keep you posted!

                      I foresee roster with oil and fresh herb run and then mashed with butter.

                      Mmm and cubed and sautéed with kale and garlic!

                        Cook them by placing in a covered casserole dish with two tablespoons of water and cook in a medium oven for about 1.5 hours. Cool.

                        Now, peel the beets and cut into 1 inch cubes - weigh them at this stage. Take an equal weight of lambs kidneys, half them and remove the white "core".

                        Chop an onion and fry gently in butter until soft and translucent. Add the beets and cook until hot. Add the kidneys and half a teaspoon of carraway seeds and about a teaspoon of paprika. stir and cook until the kidneys are almost cooked through, add salt and pepper and small tub of sour cream. Stir and serve. Yummy with a nice green veg and perhaps some white rice if you eat rice...

                          This guy is great, never watched it all but I like the way he roast them. I will have to try this next time we have some in the garden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTogwU9oSbY

                            This sounds amazing.
