SHOPPING for BEETS: Look for smooth, hard, round beets. Avoid soft, moist or shriveled skin. They should have no cuts or bruises. Leaves should be small and dark green in color.

STORING BEETS:  Place in refrigerator up to ten days.  For regular sized beets, cut off greens before storing, leaving an inch of the stem attached.  Do not remove greens from baby or tiny beets to allow more freshness. 

USING BEETS:  Juice, Simmer, Bake, Boil, Steam, Roast, Slice, Grate

FOOD PREPARATION TIPS:  Beets can stain hands and counter tops.  Use gloves to avoid pinkish-red hands. Use counter top protection, like cutting board, to avoid stains.  Clean with brush before use.  Cut top. Peel.

ATTENTION!  Whether eating or juicing beets be aware that your urine or stool may turn pink or reddish in color.  This is normal.
