I can often get a large package of beets for a dollar or so at the reduced produce rack, but then need to use them up fairly quickly. Taking a cue from a couple of other recipes, I've found that roasting them in the slow cooker works really well. I just entered the number of beets I used most recently, use whatever amount you have.
- 10 -12 medium beets, well scrubbed
- aluminum foil
- Wrap each beet in aluminum foil.
- This number of beets fit comfortably in a 6 qt slow cooker.
- Set to High and cook for 3 to 5 hours. Test by piercing one of the larger ones for doneness.
