Directions

  • 1 Place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water in Dutch oven (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place beets in steamer basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Steam 45 to 50 minutes (add boiling water during steaming if necessary) or until tender; drain.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Crystallized—or candied—ginger is fresh gingerroot that has been boiled in a sugar syrup. Besides being a great ingredient, candied ginger is a tasty as-is snack.

Beets can also be steamed in an electric vegetable steamer. Just follow the timing guidelines given in the owner’s manual.
