Deliciously sweet beetroot can eaten raw but it is more typically cooked or pickled to bring out its natural sweetness. Available in different colours such as yellow, gold, or white, purple beetroots are the sweetest and most common variety.
Health Benefits - Low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, beetroots are the new health fad due to having a high content of nitrate in them. Nitrate opens up blood vessels allowing oxygen and blood to be delivered to muscles.
Flavour - They are earthy and bitter when eaten raw but very sweet when cooked or pickled.
Availability - Available all year round.
Storage - Remove the leaves and stems from the beetroot and store then in paper or plastic bag. Place them in the dry crisp area of the refrigerator.
