Beets

About

Beets are sweet root vegetables. Both the root and leaves are edible. Comes in red, pink, yellow/orange, and red/white bulls-eye.

Storage

Separate the tops from the root, and store both in an unsealed bag in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. Separating the parts makes both last longer.

Pickling beets are a famous way to store them. Simply in Season has a good recipe, or try your own and let us know how it goes!

Cooking

Beets are tasty chopped and roasted with olive oil (425°F for about 40 minutes, flipping once). Cool them and keep in the fridge for a quick salad topping or eat warm as a side!

The skin is edible, but if you want to remove it, you can either 1) peel the beet like a potato, or 2) boil them until you can pierce them with a fork. Let cool, then slip the skins off with your hands.
