Benefits of Beetroot
How to select and store
Good quality, fresh beetroots should have their greens intact. The greens should be fresh looking with no signs of spoilage. The beetroot should be firm, smooth, and a vibrant red purple, not soft, wrinkled or dull in colour. Fresh beets with the greens attached can be stored for three to four days in the fridge, but beets with the greens removed can be stored in the fridge for two to four weeks. Raw beets do not freeze well since they tend to become soft on thawing. Freezing cooked beetroot is fine as it retains its flavour and texture.
