Sweet, easy, and packed with vitamins!
From earthy to sweet, the flavors of the beet are sure to please! This cool-weather root crop is easy to grow and versatile, proving delicious and nutritious from its rich greens right down to its round or oblong root. Typically reddish-purple but also available in white, golden-yellow, or even rainbow colors, beets are great for canning and pickling (smaller beets are best for this), eating raw, and much more! The raw beet roots have a crunchy texture that turns soft and buttery when cooked, and the greens have a satisfyingly bitter taste, similar to chard.
