Beets - Shop and Save

beet basics

❁ Beets should be round and firm with smooth skins and a deep color. If the greens are attached and you plan to use them, they should be green and fresh, not wilted.

❁ Small to medium sized beets (up to 2½ inches across) have better flavor. Choose beets that are about the same size so they will cook evenly. The larger the beet, the longer the cooking time will be.

❁ Fresh beets are available year round but might be less expensive and fresher from July through October.

❁ Buying canned beets might save you money and time.
