Best to Buy
Available all year long, beets are best from June through December.
Prep & Store
Cut off the green tops (leave an inch of stem to prevent bleeding and flavor loss) and scrub.
Quick & Easy Recipe
Wrap clean beets in foil and bake in the oven until soft (45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours) at 400°F (200°C). Cool slightly and peel off skins, then slice and salt and pepper to taste. Add a vinaigrette and sliced onions for a delicious salad.
