    You have just changed my life. I never think to roast things in a slow cooker, and we have DOZENS of beets planted in the garden.

    Woo hoo! It is thrilling, isn't it? Now I'm wandering around the kitchen looking for other things to try out. Onions caramelize BEAUTIFULLY in the slow cooker, for example…

    I've never had beets! Once I roasted them but never got around to eating them. You've inspired me to try again.

    Great tip! We love beets, and this morning I’m cooking yellow, pinwheel,regular & white. Thanks ‘a BUNCH!’

    Wht must we rap them? Anyone ever get good results just tossing cut up beets in there and still get them to peel?

    Why and wrap. Oops.

    I just throw them in. Works just fine!

    We love beets, golden and the red & white striped ones (don’t know their name) especially. Not a big fan of the solid red ones, but I just happen to have a few in the fridge that I can use to try this method with!

    I’d like to clarify that you don’t put any liquid in this before/while cooking, is this correct? Thank you!

    Anyone tried this with parchment paper instead of foil? I am trying to stay away from aluminum foil in my cooking.

    I cook my sweet potatoes all the time in the slow cooker without foil (just parchment) but have never done beets this way.
