Tips

Expert Tips

The humble beet is emerging as one of the unsung heroes of the vegetable world, and rightly so. Sweet tasting and rich in nutrition, beets are not only tasty as a side dish but are also a beautiful addition to salads. They can range in color from deep red to white, with red and golden beets most widely available. Look for candy cane (Chioggia) beets with their stunning concentric rings of red and white. Explore your local farmers’ market for the best variety.
