    Well, I've boiled them and then their easier to peel [wearing gloves] to be used in salads or pickling.

    If roasting them, just 'top + tail' them, wipe them with kitchen paper, cut into wedges, roast on a oiled sheet pan, adding your choice of seasonings / herbs.

    Peel after cooking,and they're cool enough to handle safely.

    After, because the skins will peel right off.

    Usually easier After cooking, but either one will do.

    If I'm boiling of steaming them I always do it afterwards by grabbing them  one at a time when barely cool enough to handle and running them under the cold tap over a sieve. The skin rubs right off.  Sometimes the beet shoots out leaving you holding a jacket of peel!
