Any idea how many beets in a can?

I am making a roasted beet salad for a dinner this weekend and it calls for a can of beets but I prefer to roast them my self but I am not sure how much to substitute for the can.

I would look at a can at the grocery store, and look at the OZ... like is the can 10 1/4 oz? Or whatever.

Then buy your fresh beets, weigh them. You'll want to weigh a few ounces over just to be safe that you have enough after they cook down.

That would be what I would do.

Or.... see if you can find an online recipe that calls for fresh beats and then convert.

God bless,
Michelle
