Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the salt with the caraway and sage. In a large baking dish, spread 1 cup of the salt mixture in an even layer. Lay the beets on the salt and cover them completely with the remaining salt. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the beets are tender when pierced with a knife.
