Yield: Serves 4One of the easiest ways to prepare beets is to wrap them in aluminum foil and bake them whole as you would potatoes.
Ingredients:8 medium beets, unpeeled
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dry red wine
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions:1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Wrap each beet in a square of aluminum foil and place directly on the oven rack. Bake for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until tender when pierced. Peel the beets and cut them into quarters.
2. Melt the butter in a wide saucepan. Stir in the wine and chives. Add the beets and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper and heat until warmed through.
