Beets, Red - Organic - 1 lb (1-2 pcs depends on size), loose without beet tops.
Red beets are round with a deep red colour and rich earthy flavour. They are rich in vitamins C, A, and folate, as well as they are a good source of minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Use: great in savory dishes, a perfect match with goat cheese, also red beets are used in desserts due to their sweetness. Red Beets can be cooked, pickled, salt-roasted, used in soups, sandwiches, kebabs, and many more.
Storage: beets can be stored for long periods if kept in a cool, dark, and dry place. Beets can keep for 2-3 weeks without tops in the crisper drawer of the fridge and up to 1 week with tops. The green leaves (beet tops), once removed, will keep 1-2 days and are recommended to be stored in a plastic bag in the fridge.
