2. Lightly rub the beets with about 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Place them in the oven on a roasting pan and cook for about 1 hour, or until they can be pierced with a fork.
3. Combine the orange juice, vinegar, remaining olive oil, and mustard, and place in a small pan and bring to a boil.
4. Remove the beets from the oven and peel them when they are cool enough to handle. Place them in a bowl.
5. Pour the orange juice mixture over the beets. Add salt and pepper to taste and the fresh mint, if desired.
