Roasted Beet

Don't let the fear of beet stains prevent you from making this perfect party appetizer! When handling cooked or canned beets, it's easy to stain your hands and cutting board from the juices. To prevent this, wear disposable latex gloves and cut beets on a large glass or ceramic plate rather than a cutting board.

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.
