Golden Beets turning black after roasting?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i roasted some golden beets last night, peeled and quartered them, today the are black on the inside. Oxidation maybe? Never happened to me before, but this is the 2nd batch to do this. Anyone have any idea? Thanks

yes they  oxidized, try washing them in some acidic water next time prior to roasting.

Picked to early the starch in certain vegetables (beets) is high % wise to the development of natural sugars.The exposed starch will discolor even after cooking.
