Directions:
To roast beets: Heat oven to 400. Cut away tops, leaving 1 inch of stalk. Leave root end intact. Wash beets gently. Put them in one layer in a roasting pan & cover tightly. Roast until beets are easily pierced with a sharp thin knife, around an hour, give or take 15 mins., depending on the diameter of the beets. Let them cool then rub off skin with paper towels. (Wear protective gloves if you don't want red fingers for the next few days!) Cut them into quarters or wedges.

Finishing with Flavors Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add ginger and saute for 20 seconds. Add next 3 ingredients and cook for 30 seconds. Add beets and cook for 5 minutes, tossing frequently. Add salt and liberal amounts of freshly ground black pepper to taste.

I came across this recipe in my beloved 'Cooks Bible' while seeking a new veggie dish for the 2006 Holiday Season. It was a big success on Thanksgiving at the Slater house and even the kids enjoyed it. Tina, especially, wanted to be sure I included this in the family cookbook, so...This is for you Tina! Enjoy!!!
