We Got The Beet! So does Jason Long of Favored Flavors!
In conjunction with the start of our We Got the Beet Kids & Adult Program Series, the Locavore Demo features everyone’s favorite root vegetable (okay, at least OUR favorite root vegetable).
Some KEY POINTS about Beets from Eat Smart, Move More include:
- Beets are a good source of folate and manganese.
- When shopping, choose beets with firm, smooth skins and nonwilted leaves, if still attached. The smaller the beet, the more tender it is!
Golden beets have a sweeter and milder flavor than red beets.
- Remove leaves, leaving about 1 inch of the stems, and use as greens – raw or cooked!
- Store beet roots in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
