How to Pressure Cook Beet Greens

Be sure to wash the greens thoroughly. They can be very gritty and sandy.

I like to place them in my salad spinner, fill it with cold water. Then lift them out of the water in the spinner strainer. I dump the water and do this step several times until the water is clear.

Here is a little tip from my aunt. She put the beets on the rack, placed the greens on top of the beets, and cooked them all together.

I was afraid to do this trick. I didn’t want them to overcook due to the cooking time the beets require. But according to her, they were very good and not overcooked.
