Other names:
Blood turnip, beetroot

Beets are loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C.  The greens have a higher content of iron compared to spinach.  They are also an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and iron.

The root becomes very sweet when cooked, particularly roasted. The leaves have a slightly bitter taste.

Beets can be boiled or roasted to get a sweeter flavor. Commonly juiced and mixed with carrot juice.

The only real substitutes are canned beets and possibly carrots depending on the recipe.

To store beets, trim the leaves 2 inches from the root as soon as you get them home. The leaves will sap the moisture from the beet root. Do not trim the tail. Store the leaves in a separate plastic bag and use within two days. The root bulbs should also be bagged and can be stored in the refrigerator crisper drawer for 7 to 10 days.
