  3. Once you have it closed, place the entire package on a cookie sheet or in a baking dish. Bake at 350 F. until soft and easily pierced with a fork. (Time will depend on size of beets) Allow them to cool enough that you can handle them without burning yourself.

  6. Make sure that the beats are in a single layer so all pieces are laying in the juice to marinate. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight (or at least for 2 hours minimum).
