  4. Add beets.
  5. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat.
  6. Boil until tender, 40 to 50 minutes; drain.
  7. Run cold water over beets; slip off skins and remove root ends.
  8. Cut into shoestring pieces.

For the recipe

  1. Prepare and cook beets as directed above; Cook and stir onion in margarine in 10-inch skillet (I used a large pot) over medium heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Heat, stirring occasionally, until beets are hot, about 5 minutes; sprinkle with parsley.
