Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, toss the beets, shallots, rosemary, and olive oil. Place into a foil pouch and roast in the oven for 1 hour.
After the beets have cooled, remove their skin. Arrange in jars alternating layers with the onion. In a small pot boil the vinegar, salt, sugar, and water, and pour over the beets. Put tight lids on the jars and refrigerate for 3 to 7 days before serving.
On the Internet, however, there is no check on silly rules, because on the
Internet, increasingly, rules are enforced not by a human but by a machine:
Increasingly, the rules of copyright law, as interpreted by the copyright
owner, get built into the technology that delivers copy-righted content. It is
code, rather than law, that rules. And the problem with code regulations is
that, unlike law, code has no shame.
-- Lawrence Lessig, "Free Culture"
