About me: Beets are definitely a favourite at Catena Farm! Beets can be eaten raw, boiled, braised, pickled, juiced, roasted, and barbequed. Beets are an excellent source of fibre, vitamin C, magnesium, and folate.
Storage: If your beets still have greens attached, cut them off, leaving an inch of stem. Store the beet roots, with the rootlets (or "tails") attached, unwashed, in a cotton mesh bag, or paper towel, then place in a reused plastic bag in the crisper bin of your refrigerator. They will keep for several weeks.
