|Beets boiling in the PURPLE water :)|
Rinse the outside of the beets so there isn't a lot of dirt on the outside. Don't cut them or clean them too carefully because the skin will be removed later. Boil some water in the pot, then submerge the beets in the boiling water. Cook them for about 25 minutes, or until you can stick a fork in them, but not too mushy. Then remove from heat and run them under cool water. Using your hands, roll the skin off the outside. It should easily peel off. THEN EAT!
