Your beets came to us from Blue Sky Farm, in Hastings, Florida – less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.
When we were kids, beets were canned or pickled and definitely not among our favorite things to find on our plates. These fresh, delightful beets are sweet and will change your mind! The interior flesh is absolutely gorgeous with a deep burgundy color. Don’t underestimate the power of these guys when roasted and simply paired with goat cheese. Goat cheese pairs so well with beets that there are hundreds of recipes matching up the two!
To store your beets, remove the tops and store the greens separately in a loosely wrapped plastic bag or glass container. The tops are edible and can be used any way you would prepare other greens like spinach or swiss chard. Greens will last just a few days, but the beet roots might last two to four weeks if properly stored. Place your beet roots in another bag and store them in your fridge. As always, don’t wash the greens or the roots until you are ready to prepare them, as moisture will quickly rot both.
