    You state that Beets must be peeled prior to roasting them. I disagree. Your way is messier. I cut off the greens, leaving about 2″ of stems. I also leave the root on. I then wrap each beet in Aluminum foil and pop them in the oven. When they are done, remove the foil and let them cool slightly. Then take a paper towel and RUB the skins off, cut off the root and stems, and you’re done. Once roasted the skins slip off easily.
