Steamed Beets
1 bunch Beets, about 2 pounds, greens removed and reserved for another use,
leaving a 1-inch beet top; beets washed thoroughly.

Be careful not to let the pan run out of water during this long steaming
process. To make sure you don't forget, place marbles below the steamer
basket before steaming - they will stop jiggling when the pan is dry.

Place beets in steamer basket set in large saucepan with 1 inch of water.
Bring to boil; steam over high heat until beets can easily be pierced with
thin knife, 30 to 45 minutes, depending on beet size. Drain, cool slightly,
and remove skins. Serve or use in related recipes.
