     1/4 c  Hazelnuts
       6 md Beets, trimmed
       3 tb Balsamic vinegar
   1 1/2 tb Olive oil

   Place the hazel nuts in a preheated 350 degree F oven
   and toast for 10 minutes, until skins start to crack.
   Remove from oven and cool slightly. Place in a kitchen
   towel and rub to remove skins.  Chop the nut coarsely.
   Wrap the beets in a large piece of aluminum foil and
   place on a baking sheet.  Bake in a preheated oven at
   425 degrees F for 45-50 minutes, until just tender.

   oil., pouring over the beets.  Season with salt and
   pepper.  THe beets can be eaten warm or marinate in
   the refrigerator several hours. Just before serving,
   stir in nuts and parsley.
