Store Well, Waste Less
- Canned beets can store for 2 to 5 years.
- You can use beet greens raw in salads or cooked as a side dish. Remove leaves from beets, if still attached, and store separately in an open bag. Use within 2-3 days.
- Store unwashed beets in open or perforated plastic bags (20 holes per medium bag) in the refrigerator. Use within 3 weeks. Scrub gently under running water before cooking.
- Cooked beets can be frozen. Package in freezer bags, press out the air, seal, label and date. For best quality use within 10 to 12 months.
