Roasting beets in an inch or so of water speeds up the process over roasting them dry, and helps loosen the skins. Use 1 kg of beets; if your beets are larger you may have less than 12 to the kilogram and they will take longer to cook. You could also use small candy cane or regular beets. Cook the beets while the wheat berries cook to speed cooking time.
